Holding on to Something

Comments (9)

You hear stories all the time of people who should have died from their internal bleeding, from their cancer, from their old age. They should have died, but they didn't. They held on for something — family, friends, kittens, true love (or to blave).

If I ran you over today with my Skirtsmobile en route to Elijah Wood's house, what would keep you alive? What would you be fighting to keep? Because the only thing I'm clinging to right now is hope. Hope that the grocery store will finally have Ben & Jerry's chocolate almond nougat ice cream back on the shelves this week.

What would keep me alive if you were to run over me?... The search for Elijah Wood so I can run him over in revenge. Afterall, it's his fault you ran me over.

What would keep me alive? Hopefully a well-trained doctor with the best medical equipment that good insurance can buy.

Seriously though, the main reason I wake up every morning is because I know that if I die in my sleep, my cat will probably have eaten my remains before anyone notices that I'm gone.

That being said, in your hypothetical scenario, I'd stay alive just long enough to be sure that the world will miss me when I'm gone.

Well, there's graduation next month, but I think it would be more related to not yet having seen The Dark Knight and Mamma Mia! Both of which, coincidentally, fall on the same day as graduation.
So if it happened after July 18th, I'd be screwed.

Every time I go to the grocery store, I keep hoping to find Pepsi Jazz back on the shelves again. But, alas, there is none to be found. So, on second thought, just go ahead and run me over. That's the second major soft drink maker that has "canned" (pun intended, yes) my favorite soft drink.

Metal Gear Solid 4 hits next week. Once I'm finished with that, I can die relatively happy. Sad, I know.

What would keep me alive? Hmm....probably the fact that I still have a lot of living left to do. I'm not done til I say I'm done!

And Twilight the movie is coming out in December, can't die until I see how badly they screw it up. The book was amazing so I don't expect much from the movie! They always manage to mess up a good thing by making it into a movie.

P.S. I came over here via Sarah, and I have already added you to my blogroll. Yep she sure was right! :D

Oh man I totally don't know what would. Actually no the arrival and viewing of Shameless season 5 which I am still waiting for in my letterbox.

What would keep me alive?

Immortality.

Well, that, and all of the preservatives from years of sausage ingestion. If it doesn't keep me alive it'll certainly keep me looking young for years after my death.

Easy answer: ...ladies.
