A 50-Word Story a Day Keeps the Boredom Away #32 (Republished)

Philosopher on his deathbed

The philosopher was on his deathbed. His illness had consumed his lungs, taking away his breath. His disciples, crowded around him, struggled to decipher his last words.

‘He wants us to… to bring him someone! But who?’

They tried to read his lips.

‘The priest! The priest! Bring the priest!’

      1. Yes, you’ve written that before…
        and One Hundred Years of Solitude
        as your favorite book might possibly tell much about you,
        but what we surmise about each other
        is not as important as what we write, and the feelings we evoke.
        Wouldn’t you agree?

      1. Years ago, an American comedian named Sam Kenison – known for his extremely lude act where he often mocked religion – on his death bed began to shout, “No! I’m not ready! I’m not ready to meet Him!!”
        Agnosticism often fades when death comes knocking. Nice piece!
