"I never knew that 'rise' and 'sit' cannot have direct objects until I started homeschooling. Yay, and now I can diagram it, too! How did I get through college without knowing this? It's in my fifth grade textbook. :)"
That's right, folks, if I were to die tonight, and a newspaper bothered to report my "last words," that would be what I'd have to say to you all in parting. Because now, major media outlets are using the last facebook postings as "last words." This is some scary, creepy stuff!
I know some of you-all would have "last words" about the movie you went to, what's for dinner, the Frontierville level you just received, and the fact that you are tired of ex-wife drama. Soo maybe I shouldn't complain about my dopey grammar posting being my last words. I went for a couple weeks without a status update, okaaayyy? I had to write SOMETHING.
I think some folks go wayyy far the other direction. They're figuring you might just go at any moment and/or that all thoughts emanating from your computer ought be Godly. Rest assured, y'all who are like that are going to die with some obscure verse from Titus on your epitaph.
It just doesn't make any sense to me. Do I need to prepare a "post this in the event of my death" post? I've seen people typing "authorizations" that we should change their status to "hangin' with Jesus" after their deaths. But they never give out their passwords, doggone it, or some jokester would change their next status to something truly entertaining. :)
