Plans for the end of the world
If the world ends, I will travel the world in the time I have left, and see if all roads do lead to Rome. I will visit Italy. I will get married in the Sistine chapel.
Can people get married in the Sistine Chapel? I don't know if it's possible, but I will.
I'll get married in the Sistine Chapel, and look up at the ceiling and think of Michelangelo. I'll wonder if he made plans for the end of the world. Did he ever wonder about an apocalypse?
If the world ends, I'll tell somebody that I love them. When they ask me why: I love them because I can.
If the world ends, I'll read every book in the library and search for the meaning of life. When I don't find it, I'll be happy with 42.
If the world ends, I'll build a bonfire. I'll spend a night watching things burn and trading stories with whoever will listen. I'll make end-of-the-world s'mores.
If the world ends, I'll spend a night sleeping under the stars.
If the world ends, I'll bake pizzelles and give one to everybody I meet. They'll be in the shape of snowflakes and I will cover them with powder sugar. I'll go to New York and hand them out to everyone I meet. That night, I will watch the city from up above, and if I've handed out enough cookies, the streets might be covered with snow.
If the world ends, I'll plant a garden. I'll grow love and time and jelly beans and hugging and cocoa and all the things that make life worth living and you.
