that can't be a fun thing to read about in the paper...
Right? I hope I don't ever read that. That'd suck, yo. ;)
Haha. I don't think he'd agree...
If you think about it, he'd probably still be able to withdraw cash from the teller machine for a while. Someone would have to notify the bank that he'd died.
I imagine if there's an obituary someone probably all ready did. Probably had some relatives eager to get their hands on his cash.
Haha - I died two weeks ago! I was astonished that someone else even had my rather unusual name - indeed, had been given it 50-odd years before I got mine.
My namesake had caused me trouble once before. We'd been to the same ultrasound clinic.
Oooh. I'm sure you weren't happy to see them go, but now at the dentist they won't be wondering why your dentures are in such good shape and permanently attached to your teeth, right? :)
And did you send a card?
Bet it would have reeeally messed with whoever read it. Probably for the best you didn't.
Aw, that story makes me happy and sad all at the same time. Imagine actually waking up dead one day and not realizing it? Yikes, not a pleasant thing to figure out, I would think.
Totally. Definitely makes me think about what that would be like... Maybe I've seen too many movies.
That guys just so incredibly awesome with his mishaps, and hijinx and adventures. Amazing guy.
how do you not know that you are dead?
Is that 'Into the West' by Yulia? Or is Into the West a band?
Neither in fact.
It was the mini-series Into The West, which I might say, though more depressing then Schindlers List, very accurate, and well done. Kudos to Speilberg.
haha hmm thats interesting
I've heard longer versions..still good story though. I love little twists. and I wonder, does the guy really think he's damned? That had to be said purposely not just as a common saying.
Well, it's supposed to be one of the "worlds shortest stories". ;) And I don't know. Could go either way I suppose.
Well, I've seen no previous mention of this, so I'll tell you this:
This is actually a very common length for short stories, because many people (myself included) practice writing via the "55 Word Story" method. And, this story has 55 words (Yes, I counted.)
I'd show you one of mine, but I've a feeling you'd not be interested.
By the way, I'm adding you.
I'm DEFINITELY interested!!! I love reading peoples stories, especially the shorter ones, because then I know I will. That may sound mean, but I have a kid, and have a short attentionspan. ;) I get easily distracted when things get into a number of chapters and such. :) Why do you think I wouldn't be interested? And you're added back, of course. :)
