Would you try and do something you'd always meant to and never got around to before or maybe just huddle close to your loved ones and wait?

I don't think "tomorrow" would give me time to do anything apart from speak to my family!
If the world was going to end tomorrow, there is not much I could do in such a short time. I would possibly go and have my dogs destroyed so they didnt suffer.

I read a book called The Last Policeman a while back where the world was going to be hit by a meteor destroying a lot of things and plunging the survivors into an ice age. One of the characters in the story also wanted to have his dog destroyed so it wouldn't have to suffer through it. I think that's a very compassionate thought.
Me too, Finy, I couldn't bear to think of my dogs being terrified like that. I would die lonelier but happier.

I would just go to my sons house, and gather the whole family together.

Love the painting! I have two by that artist in my home. :)

Good answer also.
I love the painting, it captures true love of a family.

I'd probably take a lot of sleeping pills so I wouldn't have to live my last hours in absolute terror; It also means you'll be asleep (or already dead) when the end comes.
What would happen, just 'if' it missed after all
the speculation.
It could happen, where they make a mistake?
by jonaja
Well the question was if a meteor were going to hit, not 'it might just possibly hit'. Anyway, a planet is a pretty big thing to miss.
Not to a meteorite that's many klms square!

There is something I would have to do, but once that's out of the way, I imagine I'd huddle with my loved ones and turn on some calming music, pray and wait. The sleeping pills isn't a bad idea. If I didn't have a family, I'd probably do that.

I'd just get on with my life and try to ignore it as best I could. Often these kinds of scares are only scares which don't eventuate. If like was in lock-down I'd just stay close to my family.
Eat chocolate.
