This is the last WILL and TESTAMENT of me, Miss Mi Formerself. I declare that I am of a sound and disposing mind as I make this will. By this will I revoke all former wills and testamentary dispositions made by me.

To my boyfriend, Joe Handsome, I bequeath all royalties from my many books which I never got the chance to write-I was always too busy, the time was never right plus you did not encourage me.

To my sisters-Miss, Doitonherown, Mrs HappilyMarried, Ms. Idon’tneedaman and Miss Followinherfootsteps, I bequeath all the beautiful clothes that fill my walk-in closet some I never wore. I permit you to make whatever alterations are necessary because like you all know I was big and fabulous. I am unable to leave you money because I just had to have the clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy them.

To my sister, Miss Followinherfootsteps, particularly, I bequeath all my Manolo Blahniks, Jimmy Choos and Miu Miu’s, you will need them. I permit you to auction them off on e-bay, as I know that you shop in the “Excuses Mall” (just like I did ) and you may have a will that looks like this one day-far away. I hope you don’t though.

To my brothers, Mr. Keepatit and Mr. Couchpotatoe, I bequeath my desk at the office. I worked there for 60 hours every week and hated it thoroughly BUT I still got many awards for the job, and you all looked up to me. I also bequeath the awards to you, they are shining and envied by most.

You see, I have not much else to give. My sixty hour job took most of my time-I realize too late, that that time is what my life is made of. I didn’t achieve much else but work. Oh! And I shopped and ate-to compensate.

For ease of administration, I have bought a vault at one of the nicest cemeteries in an upscale part of town. I have bought a tombstone, it’s made of pure marble and it reads

“Here lie the remains of Miss Mi Formerself,

She died full

-dreams, potential and all-intact”

Adeiu, to you all. I shall miss our long phone calls, where I just whined about getting nothing done, my boss and how I couldn’t even enjoy my fat pay check-oblivious to your need. I shall miss sending you money for weddings and christenings I could not attend. I shall miss the guilt and the resultant responses I had to rehearse before hand, when asked to put family first. I shall miss you all, because my intentions were good towards you, I just didn’t act it out.

IN WITNESS whereof, I, the said, Miss Mi Formerself, have signed my name this 28th day of January 2009.

Join the conversation, I'd like to know what you think!
