Today I will answer the seventh question of the New York Time question series: 36 Questions – How to fall in love.
If you are new to the blog and you want to start with my answer to the first question, you can click here.

Question number seven reads as follows:
Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?
I actually don’t have a hunch how I will die. But, as this would be a rather short and boring answer, I want to tell you how I fear I will die and how I would like to die.
My fear how I will die is twofold. I am afraid of heights and also of flying, or let’s say I am a nervous flyer. So, every time I step into the machine and there is even a tiny bump during the flight, my thoughts of the plane crushing are quite vivid. I know planes are one of the most secure means of transportation, but trying to see it from this perspective, while flying, doesn’t help ^^
Another fear I have how I will die is to get eaten by a shark. Again, one of my best friends goes diving and also swam with sharks already. They are majestic and important animals, and still I fear to end up as one of their meals.
Sometimes, while flying I imagine the plane crushing over an ocean and I survive only to be eaten by a shark later on. ^^
My wish how I would like to die would be like that. I’d like to be with my wife and my children when I die. Maybe, it can be possible that I saw some of my friends a short time before, too. I also like to die of old age. However, I want to really be able to live my life until the last moments and not to be bound to a bed in a hospital. I’d like to be able to tell my wife that I love her and how much the time with her meant to me and that she made me very happy and I want to tell my kids how much I love them and how proud I am of them, and that I wish them only the best for their future and that they shouldn’t mourn my death but celebrate my life and what I meant to them.
Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die? Or do you have a wish for how you will pass this life?
Have a wonderful day and take care =)
