Guy Sees Own Obituary in Newspaper

dcastle – q103

Sometimes things in life seem so bad that I often wonder if I have died and just didn’t know it yet. But then someone tells me to move out of the way and I realize I’m not I just at some Taco Bell. However in the case of Sven-Olof Svensson of Sweden there was something a little more permanent that made him think he might be dead.

“Sven-Olof Svensson was reading his local paper, the Jonkopings-Posten, and came across his own obituary.

The obit had been submitted to the paper by his 90-year-old sister after he had been admitted to the hospital Christmas Eve for feeling “unwell,” the New York Daily News reports.

The sister spoke with doctors but misunderstood their diagnosis. She assumed Svensson had already died and started writing up an obituary about her brother with his friend, Lars Faltskog.” –HP

There is both an upside and down side to this situation. The upside is that you are not actually dead and you can make and revisions and changes to the obituary that you do not like.

The downside is the thrill of dying has already past. You and everyone in your life has lived it and now when you truly croak there will be no more magic.
