It wasn't the end of at least not so far this is today is some people have interpreted the Mayan calendar. You come to -- the conclusion that the world is going to and today not supposed to -- I think sometime this afternoon if you really wanted to nitpick you the average you do all that man if you don't carry -- one you don't borrow one properly -- the whole thing what about the wait years they've encountered that there's that experience it's all highly confusing and at what about daylight saving time I'm gonna get David I don't know maybe. You know here's the crazy thing about it we might be dead. We might be dead right now we don't dog well most of us believe there's life after death. Is this what you would expect things don't nobody thought -- I'm not exactly. Personal right now I feel like I'm in heaven but that doesn't mean depending on how the show goes summer -- -- well I guess I really went to hell yeah that all the parents -- -- on what happens at the boss's office after the show at this point. OK I don't know really haven't you after the fact I was purgatory. But I want the other way. So I want to do this in a positive way not a negative way -- What's the last songs you would wanna hear this this was going to be your last day. What would be the last song you would wanna hear. What would be the last meal. -- -- -- What words. What would. Will be the last place you'd wanna see or or or. The threesome with us to be positive when I think about how we quite often. Take for granted to that we're gonna just be here tomorrow so we don't do the things that we would really love to do now and so. By eight. Thinking about this today if this where -- our last day what's the last thing we wanna do I think it tells us about what we really love and light through what we appreciate it life and and what we might wanna. Continue on some things they obviously week we used panel forward and then some things that we really won over absolutely free so I guess money was no object and that's so -- you're just gonna you know right. Unlike your don't worry about the -- the money thing potentially and I have whatever you want whether it's the food during the whatever I would do I'd wanna pick a meal that I would have to worry about the consequences of eating -- meal. The next day because you're sometimes I think it was well I'm not eat that the guys it's like conformity. After the deal paranoid about that some of those things. I would love to be it was just you know throw all that out and think you know I'm just gonna go to. Derrek Lee type place in and -- Sunday -- -- sorry I would allow myself that it.
