And another thing

I want my family and loved ones (who are the only ones to read this blog anyway) to know that if I'm ever in a state where I can't eat macaroni and cheese and can only find nourishment via feeding tube; where I can't speak my mind and can only communicate with an awkward fluttering of my eyelids; and, most importantly, where I can't smile for pictures and there are images being broadcast throughout the world of my indignity and (albeit oblivious) suffering, I would want you to pull the damn plug.

ok, so can we consider this to be your living will? And don't forget, I have one. it's in a file somewhere marked 'legal docs' or something. but let this be mine.
PULL THE DAMN PLUG--WHETHER IT'S A BREATHING THING OR A FEEDING TUBE.
and, by the way, my biggest losses would be (aside from seeing my grandkids grow up) nytimes xword puzzles and The West Wing. love, mom
