A very interesting 13. I like all of them, I hope I get to say something interesting for my last words, but they will probably be, "I hope that smell isn't me..." lol :),or "drat, thought you had the wrong chart". It could be fun making these up.

Julie, write those down and keep them pinned to your shirt just in case. Those are both very funny.

How about, "I told you I was sick!"

Julie said...

or " all the money is buried in the....." "The lottery ticket is...""I will only miss one of you, you know" "Well, there goes my vacation plans" "I lost all this weight for nothing!" This is fun!
