Famous Last Words

A few days ago, my wife and I were discussing an article about famous last words – really last words, said on one’s deathbed. It got me to thinking about what I’d like my last words to be.

I think either, “‘Tis well” (in honor of George Washington) or “Where’s my burrito?” (in honor of Homer Simpson) would work well. What? Okay, okay. Realistically I would have to side with something really pretty and inspirational, hoping that I get a good opportunity in the next life. Something thankful, too. But it’s hard to come up with on the spot when I’m healthy and alive… I wonder how hard it’ll be right before I pass on.

This page of quotes includes one I really like, attributed there to Errol Flynn: “I’ve had a hell of a lot of fun and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.” Sounds nice.
