So, what would your last meal be?

I admint I am a coward and don't want to be identified with this one. The topic of last meals and those poor sad wasted lives (victims and criminals) is not one to make light got me thinking what I would eat if I knew I had one meal left.

In reality, I'd be in the decline to eat category. Or maybe I could get a handful of Valium.

But say you were doing something brave and heroic and it was very likely that your next meal would be your last. You laugh at fate and decide to wildly enjoy your last minutes on earth. You can have anything you want. Go to any restaurant. What would you eat?

I would have a New England clam bake. The lobster straight off the boats - sweet dripping with butter. A ear of sweet white corn, just plucked from the fields. A lovely chardonay. For desert, strawberry shortcake and champagne.

Curious to see if anyone else can talk about their last meal and overcome the grimness of people who really do have to make this choice.
