I would definitely spend my time with my loved ones and friends. But for something crazy to do before I die would be to go sky diving. I've always wanted to do that and I know I would on my last day!

I want to say something crazy like bungee jumping but truthfully, I'm really just not into high-thrill stuff like that.

One thing that I would want to do (besides spending time with my family, of course) is going to an animal shelter to volunteer or something. I'm zoophobic - ridiculously frightened of animals - and even though I definitely admire them from a distance, I'd want to be able to conquer my fear if I knew I was going to die.

Thanks for the giveaway - I loved this book.

I would give away all my possessions and spend the day doing something I'd never otherwise do or never had the chance to do, and with complete strangers. I would lose myself entirely for that one last day.
If I forget who I am on my last day, then I'd die completely free of earthly concerns, and so dying won't seem so bad.

Does that make sense?
Maybe I went too far, there. xD
But anyway, yeah, I wouldn't want to die all worried about materialistic stuff.

Of course I would want to spend time with my friends and family, but I would also want to go see the aurora borealis aka the northern lights. It's something I've dreamed of seeing my whole life.!/linda_lea/status/65211834516508672

I would spend the last day with a close friend who passed away. We were 16 and she died in a car accident, i think about it everyday and wish that I could see her one last time. I would give anything to do so.

Great giveaway Kody--

If I had one day left, then I think I would take my little brother, and drag my mom and dad to go to Disneyland. Disneyland is one of my favorite places on earth, because it is just so happy.

Every time I see those gates (the entrance to Disneyland), my heart starts beating really fast. I get so excited. I feel like a little kid again.

My brother went the last time when he was six, so he probably doesn't remember a lot of it, so I want to be able to show him everything that Disneyland has to offer.

Then throughout the day, I would eat all the fancy things that Disneyland has to offer at overpriced prices. And then I would buy one of those Mickey Mouse ear hats, and get it engraved with "Mandy: "The Best Last Day Ever!" and wear it around all day.

I would spend as much time as possible with my family.

If I had one day left to live, I would write the most sappiest yet truthful status on Facebook so all my friends would know how much I care for them. Then, I would call my parents, my brother, and my grandmother and tell them how much they mean to me. Then, I'd play with my daughters, bathe them and put them to sleep. And finally, I'd curl up next to my husband and snuggle with him while eating ice cream. I'd pretty much stay up the entire 24 hours.

I got kind of choked up writing that comment. *sniff* Maybe I better not enter this contest.

Riley Redgate said...

I'm obsessed with this book! Ack; yay.

If tomorrow were my last day on earth, I'd do lots of things. But hmm, I'm only supposed to say one.

So, that one thing would be to force away my terror, call him and finally tell him I've been in love with him for three years. Even when he wanted to date my sister. Even when I didn't see him for months at a time. I'd tell him I wish he weren't in Paris right now so I could kiss him. If by some miracle he was back from Paris, I'd kiss him. And I wouldn't stop for a very long time.

LOLOLolol that was too serious now it's awkward

Link me up, bro:

P.S. - Then I'd BREAK SOME LAWS! Yeahhhh dude. =]

I would spend it with my Hubby and the family having a pool-side BBQ. Then finishing off the day with a movie and everyone snuggled under blankets with popcorn, hot coco, and m&m's.

I would definitely do something crazy. I don't know what, mostly because I'm afraid of heights, but something crazy it'd definitely be. I don't think it'd be bungee jumping (unless maybe I had a hot guy to do it with me *G*) or sky diving. My heart is racing just *thinking* about that! Lol.
