Overheard in the Hallway:

Me: "I'm just not getting off to my normal zingy start this morning. No Vault Zero or Diet Dew."

RX: "I thought you had...?"

Me: "I have Cherry Coke Zero, but it's hardly supercaffeinated. Usually by this time I'm three Vault Zeros and two cups of coffee into the day."

RX: "Young lady, we need to talk about your excessive drug use."

Me: "Hey, I treat my body like a temple... to Bacchus."

Joanna,

"Your internal organs, not so much. :-P"

My secret life goal is to make a final practical joke from beyond the grave by being an organ donor. Boy, will they be surprised to find out that I am almost 100% non-recyclable! :D

I intend to screech to a halt, at the end of my life, hair smoking, covered in scars, internal organs failing, and say, "man, what a ride". No sense in God giving you all that cool stuff if you're not gonna use it.

Having committed all of the seven deadly sins, and broken all the commandments, I'm now working on the 613 mitzvot. Be thorough, I always say.

I intend to be cremated, and if I leave the crematorium (and perhaps the surrounding block) in a smoking crater as a result, so be it!

The hell with that. Women in my family routinely live well into their 90s, and I intend to make the most of it. I plan to die of old age. While skydiving.

I think OLD AGE is over-rated...

My body is a temple, too.

For some pagan cult that practices human sacrifice.
