“You’re looking rather grave young man”
I looked up to see who spoke and found a rather disreputable angel nodding at me, a new entrant, dead on my feet as it were.
“Sorry for the quip, but welcome and I hope your stay here is filled with fun and happiness,” he concluded.
So this was it, the after life inhabited by wisecracking angels trying to make this homecoming a bit of a laugh.
“Have I come up or gone down”, I asked politely.
“I’m not sure” he replied “As nobody has told me that yet either”
