The Way It Is

Your last day on Earth, with a paralegal



There is a comet roaring toward the Earth and the news anchor predicts it will smack into our planet and destroy life as we know it. We have one day to live.

City Weekly asked Cheryl Msimang, a paralegal for Lexington Law, what she would do with one day left on Earth:
