I would prefer to not die at my desk.
While I appreciate my employment
my head falling straight down onto the
plastic keyboard with a deafening thud
is not what I dream about.
Skydiving in a wing suit across
the snow-covered Alps maybe.
Or killed by a volcano while
helping impoverished people
obtain access to water,
that would be sufficient
Even dying in a marathon would
be far better than my head crashing
into my keyboard while multiple
spreadsheet pages flip across the
I would hate that.
