    Well, [luckily?] I do not have friends, so I would spend as much of the day with as many of my immediate family members as I could wrangle up. I would not tell them I was going to die; I'd just make sure that that day, they knew how much and how, individually and specifically, I appreciated them. I would attempt to deliver these messages in such a way as not to sound like I was being strange, inauthentic, nor in a manner that could be construed as a goodbye--I'd not want to spend my last hours depressed, as a source of sadness, nor would I want that to be the last my family remembered of me. After our dinner, (meat loaf 'n' garlic taters?) I'd sit at the beach, reflect on my life, and watch the sun evanesce over the horizon for the final time as the tide rolled me out. It sounds cheesy and probably boring, but if there is any truth to the idea that all our fears can somehow be reduced, at least metaphorically, to death, this makes it most appropriate. For drowning being the last way I'd want to die, and with the knowledge that I will go peacefully surrounded by water, it's as if I'm being ferried out floating atop the "conquered" Ultimate Fear and in this way, making consummate amends with every one [fear, anxiety, complex] I'd ever held in one fell swoop...doing so fluidly, tranquilly, in sublime darkness--quite like a womb...reflecting on my life and dying in an environment analogous to birth. It is also mimicking the manner in which I'd ideally have liked to live out the rest of my life--that is--fluidly moving from pursuit to pursuit, free of fear, tear, or snag. I'd live my whole life in those moments and die in birth of it.

    I wouldn't tell anyone - what would be the point of torturing them with that kind of thought?
    I'd probably go to the park and watch people pass by. Think about what's ahead of them, how simple life is; I think then I'd be able to say goodbye.

    In the typical INFP style that I have for some reason, despite being T, I would gather my friends and have a talk about ourselves and our lives and maybe a bit of philosophy. Part way through I might tell them I was going to die, that is if there's a beleivable reason. Either way, I would make sure my sentiments were known to them, and tell them how I feel about them, though nicely. Don't want to know that I died with some sort of grudge. Well I'd probably mention it but say I'm at peace with that. Yeah, and then I'd just go sit by myself somewhere, or with someone else if they want to be there, perhaps on the top of the hill that overlooks my neighbourhood, and wait to die, listening to some calming music, perhaps "Mr. Tambourine Man". And hopefully it would be raining lightly, but you take what you can get. On my bed at home I would leave some sort of will or testament explaining what I want done with my stuff and instructions to inform a couple of internet communities I am involved in.

    24 hrs is a scarily short time.

    Hmm. I suppose I'd tell myself I shouldn't sleep because I'd have forever to sleep so ... I'd ... leave everything, go to a beach, get a massage, be by myself, live in the moment ... not much I can do in a day. Good byes are very traumatic for me. I avoid them.

    Oh, yeah. It is 24 hours. That means I'd have more time so long as I didn't sleep at all. Well, I dunno, then. I might also go for a long walk, maybe catch a movie, and I'd make my will a video will. And spend at least 2 hours with family.

    I'd probably spend the entire day on the phone in my room. I have a definite list of people that I want to talk to before biting it. I'd leave the door unlocked too so it won't be to much trouble to find my body.

    Hey, I was just wondering, because I realised I asked the same question in the 'ask anything' thread, was that why you made the thread Saslou? Or just coincidence. If so, it's a bit of a funny one.
