6 words on your tombstone

I remember someone on the radio having a contest where you would sum up your life in 6 words and those 6 words would be all that there was to describe how you lived your life.

My mother always told me that I should just think about what I was going to say before I say it. And as I went through life I think she was right.

6-words...
Should have kept my mouth shut

Couldn't tell you if it was 120 or 240.) Stopped my heart and breathing, I was fully conscious, but paralyzed. Managed to "kick" both legs just enough to get barely beyond the balance point and very slowly fall backwards off the step ladder. What felt like minutes later, the floor struck my back very hard and restarted my heart.

That was my second life. First was my head injury many of you here know about. Third was the right turning truck that straightened out just before I bought it. (Passenger in saw me and yelled. Later that year two cyclists here died of separate tight turning truck incidents.)

So for me "I guess my turn has come."

"Knock, knock, knocking on Heaven's door" came to mind, but I'm not sure why as I'm not a GnR fan.
