Writer's Block: Going down

You're on a crashing plane and your partner is fast asleep. Would you wake her/him up to say 'I love you' one last time or let her/him die in her/his sleep?

I'm pretty much a jerk, so not only would I wake Seanie up, I'd probably do it not so that I could say "I love you" so much as scream "PUMPKIN WE'RE GONNA DIE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH*SPLAT*"  Poor guy.  He really deserves better.

In a flipped scenario, I think I would prefer to be awake when I die; there's something creepy to me about falling asleep and never waking up.  As horrible as death from a plane crash would be, I think I'd rather experience it and be certain of death than just drift away.  Does that make sense?  Probably not.  Like most Americans, I try not to think about death unless absolutely necessary, and sometimes not even then.
