Last Line Blogfest

Something seemed vaguely wrong about that statement, but spots floated overhead as the ceiling faded in and out. In the distance I heard angry epithets in Polish, and male grunts, but felt no more pain.
In fact, I felt nothing: no pressing weight from above, no hand over my neck. Death was going to come peacefully.
Or maybe it already had.
I apologize up front; I'm out of town (completely--blissfully--internetless), and I will not be able to read through and comment on everyone's snips. I hate to miss them!
