Smiling Mike – What are you afraid of?

The assignment for the Transom Online Workshop: Ask 7 strangers what they’re afraid of, take the best answer and get it down to three sentences.

“We did the organ donation deal where they – it’s a horrible thing – they bring the person in, they strap ’em down; it looked like Jesus on the cross.  They pull the plugs, and if they don’t expire within 90 minutes, they can’t harvest the organs.  We’re begging her to die, you know, and Jill sat there with me for 21 hours after that and her mom finally died.”
