Oh boy. I realize it is saying a lot to title a post "I think I might know what it is like to die."
But for those of you who have been following along here for awhile, you likely understand how important it is for me to share this!
After all, I have a (ahem) mortal fear of death!
The other night I was watching this Netflix special called American Meme featuring a rather eclectic assortment of personalities - everyone from Paris Hilton to an intriguing individual named Josh Ostrovosky who apparently prefers to be called The Fat Jewish.
To say these folks have some, well, unusual ways of spending a day would be an understatement. It was really a fascinating documentary!
But no moment was less expected than when Paris Hilton opened up for just a micro-moment to share her thoughts about death and dying. What I learned from this is we both have the same biggest fear (yep, dying).
But what we fear about death and dying is slightly different. Paris is afraid death is going to be boring. My fear is similar, I guess - I am afraid I won't like it and it will go on forever. I am also afraid that, just like in life, I won't fit in. I won't be able to find my people - my tribe - my flock.
Speaking of flock, I am also afraid my animals and I won't be able to be together. If that is the case, I'd prefer not to go to the "people place" when I die. I want to go where they go.
