Pin It

There is a comet roaring toward the Earth and the news anchor predicts it will smack into our planet and destroy life as we know it. We have one day to live. Chaos ensues; mass suicides, mass orgies and all forms of strange behavior turn the human race into a band of crazed maniacs. 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.
