Your Epitaph

Sun Jan 30, 2011 7:24 pm

I know this has probably been discussed before still I was wondering what everybody would wish as their epitaph?

Mine would have to be "it's me, I confess". That should keep people guessing for some time.

Epitaph?

I'm torn between...

Quote:
The report of my death was an exaggeration.

...and...

Quote:

Baby, if you've ever wondered,
Wondered whatever became of me,
I'm living on the air in Cincinnati,
Cincinnati, WKRP.

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking,
Town to town and up and down the dial
Maybe you and me were never meant to be,
But baby think of me once in awhile.

I'm at WKRP in Cincinnati.
I lift things up and put them down.

The object of life is not to arrive at the grave intact and in a well preserved body; but rather to skid in sideways, broken down and well used, screaming "Holy shit! What a ride!"..... and it was!!!!!

One of my all time favorites was "I Told You I Was Sick".

After my last few years of medical treatments I would really like "1944 - 2044"

Or "Wake Me For Meals".

You shouldn't have posted on the internet, then.

Saw an interview with Dave Niehaus, the Seattle Mariners announcer who passed away not to long ago. He said he's like his to say this - "regular season is now over, on to the post season". I thought that was very clever.
