Here’s a fun little game.
Determine the future epitaph on your tombstone by taking out your phone and beginning a text message that reads,
“Here lies INSERT NAME. He/she was…”
Then allow the phone to predict the rest of the sentence. If you’re using a phone that gives you three options, choose the middle one every time.
Using this method, my epitaph would read:
Here lies Matthew Dicks. He was just a bit too cold.
Pretty good. Huh?
It turns out that if you try this at different times, you’ll get different results.
My other options include:
Here lies Matthew Dicks. He was a good man in his own life.
Here lies Matthew Dicks. He was just a bit too hard on himself.
Here lies Matthew Dicks. He was the one who said we have a lot to do.
I like all of those a lot, too, but you only get one tombstone.
And no cheating. The first one is the right one and the real one.
Let me know what your phone suggests for you.
