A grave young man




“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”

  1. Oy! Dear God, please let the afterlife have a few more answers than this one! ...that said, a wisecracking angel or two would be okay! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Maybe all the snarky, irreverent angels end up in some sort of between heaven and hell. You found it, or it found you, Old Egg. A very enjoyable read.

  3. nice! I admire (and have ambitions) to write a good story and still make the Reader laugh (though, I will settle for a chuckle).

  4. I could never make sense of angels. Wish they would be more where they were supposed to!

  6. Perhaps that angel had always wanted to be a comedian.

  7. Perhaps whether it's heaven or hell is all in one's expectation.

  9. If he were a really bad comedian, then I'd wonder if it were hell!
