A 50-Word Story a Day Keeps the Boredom Away #61

Portrait of a Woman Smoking

The doctors told her she had lung cancer. There was nothing they could do about it.

‘You have 2 years left, at most. Sorry.’

For a while she felt miserable and wept. But soon her tears dried. From then on she prepared her modest funeral. And she started smoking too.

    1. My grandmother has lung cancer and she never smoked. Her husband smoked for 40 years and he is quite fine. Isn’t life darkly humorous?

  1. For a moment I thought you were writing about your paternal grandmother, but when checking back in your article about “Would We Be Happier If We Knew the Date of Our Death?” you stated she was not a smoker, but her husband was. Sometimes I think second hand smoke is just as harmful, or perhaps more harmful.

  2. Very good and interesting!
    I wrote something like that. It was about breast cancer that doctors thought I had. And I also wrote about my own funeral. I threw both in the trash u_u
