The Last Laugh

by Arjuna Ardagh —

When suicide feels like your best option, you know something has gone horribly wrong — and that is just how Matt Thomson felt.

He had lost everything: his wife, children, job, all his money and his front door key.

But everything changes when he meets Joey Murphy, ex-merchant marine, entrepreneur, teacher and wild man — an enigmatic mixture of Forrest Gump, Merlin and a long-lost best friend.

Upon hearing Thomson’s woes, Murphy offers him a life-changing deal he cannot resist: “The life you know has been completely predetermined by old habits, which are both your triumphs and your failures.

If you are really at the end of your rope, these habits will drop away and you will be free … I will give you 10 days, starting today. I will show you all you need to see. It is up to you.”

And with the deal struck, Murphy leads Thomson on the roller-coaster ride of his life — a 10-day adventure filled with dodging cop cars, playing blind man’s baseball on the edge of a cliff, finding heaven in a Taco Bell® and learning how to open the hearts of total strangers.
