Or I might just to decide to end it all for whatever reason and go out with a smile on my face and chocolate ice cream on my chin!
If you have a home attendant they willl throw out the tem labeled poison label it with : Don't touch "

I plan on going after a night of partying, fooling around and finally dropping after sex with a beautiful woman.....hopefully she dresses me and leaves before my wife comes home.

"In today's news, a special investigations police woman was assassinated outside of her home. The name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin."


That's how if I had to go, when I was in active security services, I would want it to be. Maybe taken out with a car bomb.



These days, I don't think much of it, primarily because suicide is a religious offense. If anything, at least a few years ago, I pictured it would be something ironic.


Being pro 2nd A, back when I lived in apartments, I pictured someone firing something like a .357, the round coming through my wall, and taking me out in the process. Or someone being really angry at the computers, coming in and shooting up the joint, taking me with it, and in reality......they destroy the printer room. Or if I am ever somewhere where I am taken hostage by some really bad people, given the projection I put out, how I hold myself, they are going to kill me first just on general principle.


But odds are? I'll either choke on my chilled well water......or trip over a cat. Well, at least I'll go like William Holden.


Billy Wilder on Holden's death: "If someone had said to me, 'Holden's dead,' I would have assumed that he had been gored by a water buffalo in Kenya, that he had died in a plane crash approaching Hong Kong, that a crazed, jealous woman had shot him, and he drowned in a swimming pool. But to be killed by a bottle of vodka and a night table - what a lousy fade-out of a great guy!". (from imdb)

I donít think about how I will die. I know I will, and thatís enough.
Actually, you donít need an OD, when you get old and forget to take one of the drugs, you will die. My dad forgot to take his high blood pressure drugs, had a stroke in the morning, had my uncle on my mom side didnít call him, he would be dead. When my uncle called, he described the symptoms and my uncle said he was having a stroke. Somebody called the ambulance. But he was alone at home.

He actually did die that way...in Sunset Boulevard. Which was also a Billy Wilder movie.

So I found out.....when it was mentioned in a stage play around here. I asked the actor about that line in the meet and greet after wards.

I haven't been to Arizona in a while, but here in the South, you will be hard pressed on any freeway to find a concrete abutment that isn't protected by deflection barriers. A little car will just bounce off.
