As I stepped into the shower I glanced at the clock, 18:00hrs, so this will be my last ever shower.
I had gathered all my family and friends together; I didn’t want to go alone.
All week I had been logging my lasts. Last book read, last time driving to work, last mortgage payment, etc.
Tonight it was the last meal and drink with my family. I couldn’t help keep looking at the clock, 18.30, 19:00 the deadline is getting closer.
We had eaten and drank our fill. Let’s get in a circle and hold hands, as the clock ticked, 23:59 and 3, 2, 1 we sung ‘should auld acquaintance be forgot and…..’ hang on, it’s 0:01hrs, what’s happened? Is it just us left alive? Or are we all dead? This shouldn’t be happening; it’s the end of the world? 31st December 1999 turned in 1st January 2000 without incident.
