What would you request for your last meal?
I read Dead Man Eating regularly and find the entries to be oddly and gruesomely fascinating, very much akin to the books and sites I read about medical anomalies. Reading what people about to be put to death ask to eat before they depart from this world is a little unsettling and sad. I can't seem to stop myself from peeking, though!
I checked it today to see if there was a new entry. Alas, there isn't. But each time I look at that site, I wonder what I'd order for my last meal. Oh my, what a tough choice that would be!
Diabetes be damned! Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, and corn on the cob with chocolate cream pie for dessert?
Porterhouse steak, 2 inches thick and barely cooked, with a sour cream, cheese, and green onion topped baked potato, and pineapple lemon cheesecake?
Crispy turkey bacon, eggs scrambled with cheese and bell pepper, and grits?
I might ask for my granny's apple cake, the aforementioned cheesecake, and a bag of fig newtons!
Honestly, I haven't a clue what I'd request.
What would you request for your last meal on this earth?
And would you actually be able to eat it? That's the real question.
