Which way would death become you?

Not to be morbid, someone recently pointed out the ironies of some famous people's deaths. For example, Edgar Allen Poe's death was wrapped in mystery when he died after having been found unconscious in the street -- dressed in clothes that were not his! Nobody has ever figured out just what happened. What better way for a mystery writer to go? When the great poet Percy Bysse Shelley died, he was cremated. Nobody was sure why his heart was so calcified that it would not burn! His wife kept it in her desk while she was writing Frankenstein! Irony abounds. I could go on and on, with many more such suitable deaths. When your time comes, what sort of death would become you? How would it suit your particular persona???

I like my sleep, so I just want to go quietly in my sleep please. But afterward, I want a lot of funny things to happen so that the people I leave behind have something to laugh at. Hm, maybe I'll start planting joke things NOW! :-)

OMG I didn’t know about the Shelley thing…how strange!!! When my time comes, I think dying in sleep would be the best. I’m quite scared of facing any pain…my theory is that do anything with me when I’m not conscious LOL so I think dying in the sleeping state would suit me perfectly.

That would certainly be comfortable, but does it really represent your personality?

I'd just as soon die in my sleep, but to go along with my life, it needs to be something that people will think is a little weird. That way they can say well she always was a little strange.

Was in a state of conscious and still able to talk with other people. If I was praying and my life suddenly did not come back and feel peaceful, serene and no torture for me. So when woke up I was on the fifth dimension, and did not realize I was not in this world anymore. It will suit with not feeling anything.
