I don't really know. I guess it'd depend where my life's at where I die. If I have a family, I hope they'd something like "I love you." or something like that. If I did something horribly wrong, I'd want them to be "I'm sorry."
I think the question of what you would like yours to be is a bit redundant.
Thinking back to how Pudge looked at last words he said that it spoke a lot about how the person lived their lives. Until someone dies, you won't know the entirety of how they spent their life, so how could you possibly say what kind of last word you are to have ahead of time?
A good one is King Charles II
"I have been a most unconscionable time dying, but I beg you to excuse it."
Just as a by the way, there are no spoilers in this thread. Pudge spends the entire book remarking on how he has an obsession with memorizing last words, and when he's asked why he replies that he learns a lot about people from them. (He reads a lot of biographies.)
i would say something that is impossible to misunderstand, because i do not want my family spending a good portion of their lives trying to find out what i meant... for instance, "DFTBA" is a candidate.
My last words would probaly be something short sweet and not very philosophical. If you think about it a lot of the really good last words have already been taken. And saying so long cruel world really isnt very interesting, though it could be.........
well...I think my Grandfathers last words were rather amusing... He had congestive heart failure and went very quickly....especially the last few hours he was alive. He was mostly out of it but all of a sudden he was wide awake and completely alert and he said, "Bernadine (my Grandmother), get my shoes on, it's time to go!" And, without hesitation she prompltly put his shoes on his feet and a few minutes later he was gone. I miss him dearly but I love that story so much.....he was such a character and it was a perfect way for him to go. He did not lose his mind (he was often fearful that he would grow senile and live out his final years in a nursing home) and he did not suffer a long and agonizing illness....he just went peacefully and he did so letting us all know he was ready as it was "time to go!"
