2016-04-16 Rerun commentary: It's good to have some last words prepared, in case you ever need them.

And you will...

It's more a matter of how much time you get to think and compose yourself, and then put your thoughts into speech. So it pays to have a couple of different versions ready:

  1. The thoughtful speech, that can be orated leisurely while on your deathbed, surrounded by loved ones, before you slip peacefully away.
  2. The witty pre-mortality quip that you can peel off in a split second, to guarantee that anyone in the vicinity when a piano falls on you* or a ravenous bear leaps out from behind a nearby hedge** can be impressed by your stoic and punningly appropriate witticism in a time of ultimate crisis.
* "I guess it's a good time to B flat."

** "How embarrassing, taken out bear handed."
