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?
Holy crap! Usually the daily writers block is like, "What do you think is more adorable kittens in a basket or puppies!"
They would probably wake up form all the people screaming and the jolting of the crashing plane so I'd just wake them up.
