Six months to live.

Written By: Gary on August 11, 2006 5 Comments

Kyra asked these questions on her blog. She actually asked them two different ways: If you had six months and what if everyone had 6 months.

If you knew you only had six months to live, and the world was guaranteed to end for you – how would you live?

What would you do?
Take it easy, relax, travel and lots more.
Would you spend your money, or save it?
Spend it. I’d clear out my 403b, 401k and IRAs! Heck, I’d stop probably stop paying my bills.
Would you eat healthy/diet, or would you be into the ice cream and chips every day?
Not healthy (not any less healthy than now either). Maybe more desserts :)
Exercise?
Exer-what? Actually, I’d be running around so much I probably wouldn’t need any.
Would you stay in your current job, or find something else to do?
Six months? I’d quit! (I like my job but at that point what’s the point).

Would you keep your current friends, or cut the ones who only waste your time?
I’d keep them all.
Would you talk to every single person that you consciously make time for? Or cut your loses?
Status quo.
Would you stay where you live, or move?
I’d stay there but also travel.
What things would you stop caring about, that you do now?
Bills, upgrading the house (painting, furniture, etc.), stop saving for car, retirement, etc.
Anything else?
I’d throw more than a few parties and give away a lot of my stuff, I don’t need lots of it and and why make someone else decide who gets what later. I’d have to rush and finish lots of my 101 in 1001 list, just the fun ones, not the chores, those are the ones I really want to do anyways so why not… Since I’m dying in 6 months it probably wouldn’t do any good to tell some people about my secret feelings for them but you never know. It might get me more kisses or (goodbye) sex…

I’m single and have no dependents so that really makes the options easier for me than some people. Sure I’d hook Mom up with some of my savings but she’s probably fine without it so that makes this a lot more fun list for me than it might be for some others.

I’m not going to go the route if it was six months for everyone, I’d have to assume it’d be a bad place to be (chaos and all). But the new series 3 Moons Over Milford (free at iTunes at this point in time) is kind of a end of the world scenario (the moon breaks into three pieces in a degrading orbit) where it’s not chaos, I’d like to think it’d go that way.

    LMAO… you’d aim for “goodbye sex”! LOL never let it be said that you missed a good opportunity, eh? *giggle* seriously, though – you’re the first to answer that way (I’ve asked a lot of guys here in person what their answers would be.)

    Also, I’ve been catching 3 moons as well (considering the town is actually in the vacinity of where I live since I’m in VT too.) They seem a lot more composed in my opinion….

    okay…so I’m the person looking for “goodbye sex” on Google, and I end up here! LOL…I just got the “we need to talk” line by my “boyfriend”…actually, he was there more for recreation than anything! LOL – he’s 9 years younger than me, and actually thought it would hurt my feelings when he said “we need to talk”…Seriously??? we need to TALK?? screw talking…all I want is the goodbye sex! LOL (he was quite good I must say!) :P

    So…begs the question…how many of you out there go for the goodbye sex just one more time before dumping someone?? — Yes, I have my hand raised…I’m 39, I’m single, and don’t really care too much about being tied down anyway (unless I’m being “tied down” for pleasure! hahaha!)

    I think there’s more people out there who feel the same as I do.

    So…how do YOU meet people? How do you meet the “man-or woman” of your dreams?

    Call me crazy, but I like to meet men the old fashioned way…(shoot! I just said old fashioned?????) I like to meet men spontaneously at a party…or at work…or through a friend. I don’t have a profile, I don’t have a picture on an “empty” site, and I don’t have a bio somewhere saying that I’m looking for “that special someone”…

    Yes, that may make me a little “less” likely to find someone, but I’ve had love…I had TRUE love 5 years ago, then he passed away…do I REALLY want to put myself out there like that again?? I don’t know…

    What do you think? Should a 39 year old widow who’s really found true love once, then lost it to death put herself out there again?? I have a killer body, I make plenty of money, and I have been known to break a few hearts…so what’s wrong with meeting men for the inevitable goodbye sex? I think it’s actually the very BEST knowing you’ll never see this person again, so you just go all out and … whew! yeah…HA! wow…that’s pretty crazy.

    So…by the way? this has been GREAT! yeah, I’m sharing my deep, dark secrets to complete strangers, but dang! I feel so much better!

    I think I’ll call my “ex” boyfriend to see if he’d like some goodbye sex! haha!!

    Ciao everyone, and thanks!

    So why wait…?

    So I was watching a re-run of Grey’s Anatomy last night. It’s the one where the wife and the husband were being adventurous since she has an aneurism and only has weeks/months to live. So they are traveling and doing…
