the last book I ever read (Based on a True Story: Not a Memoir by Norm Macdonald, excerpt ten)

from Based on a True Story: Not a Memoir by Norm Macdonald:

I sit on the edge of my bed and open the drawer. I take out the 600 milligrams of Dilaudid, the fresh syrette, and the Gideon’s Bible. I read a few of my favorite Scripture passages as I prepare the syrettes. And then I inject myself with the lethal dose of Dilaudid. I fall to my knees and rest my elbows on the bed. I pray forgiveness for what I am doing. And then I feel joy and peace fill my soul as my consciousness quietly drifts away.

And then…I don’t die.
