City Weekly asked Cheryl Msimang, a paralegal for Lexington Law, what she would do with one day left on Earth:


I would get married. Then I would fly home to Durban, South Africa, go bungee jumping and end the evening with a nice seafood meal at my favorite pub, Keg. I’d eat my fried calamari and garlic snails and look out at the ocean until the end came.
