This week’s word and phrases: Flip Insincere Erupt Sensualization (n.)) to render sensual) Hellish Faraway Resist Radical Jangled Up- Generally refers to the state of being both upset and confused, but can be used for either one of them alone Charity Case Debilitating Archetype
Usually, when death stopped by some aging soul or anyone actually, the work of the Angels was made easy when the deceased was affiliated with a religion of some kind. But when the soul belonged to an atheist, this was another kettle of fish.
The angels in question were Greg, the angel from on high and Wayne the angel from downstairs. Their jobs were to determine the soul’s final destination and point them in the right direction.
Today an atheist had arrived, and they both breathed deeply knowing they would have their work cut out for them. It was common for the soul in question to be jangled up. After a lifetime of believing there was nothing beyond death, it came as a surprise, to say the least. Often they would erupt with a combination of surprise and indignity.
They would often resist, insisting they were in a dream and that they were the archetype atheist holding firm to their radical notion of no God and no afterlife.
It was at this point that Greg and Wayne would sit the soul down and explain the waywardness of their views.
They found it debilitating to have to explain what was for them the bleeding obvious, but to flip a soul from one belief to another was never easy.
There was the choice of going up or down and the attraction of choosing one or the other. It was literally a hellish choice for some as hell did offer the best sushi and heaven the best ham sandwiches.
Added to that hell did have a much more sensualisation aspect to it, what with promiscuity and alcohol readily available and heaven on the other hand, as faraway, did appeal to those for whom hymn singing and alcohol-free wine throughout their eternity as the way to go.
Often the atheistic soul would erupt in dismay at the prospect of more ‘life’ to be had, though the term eternity and what that meant was as faraway in their comprehension as one might imagine. They refused to believe they had become a charity case and after a time of not believing a word they were being told as the two angels before them appeared nothing like the angels from what they recalled from their childhood Sunday School lessons.
Both entities appeared as well dressed gentlemen in pin-striped suits. Once it became clear this was their here and now the soul realising the situation it was in, decided insincerity could lead to something dire, so they carefully rethought their predicament and decided it was best to act with sincerity.
For Wayne and Greg, it was an exhausting business and once the soul was delivered to their version of eternity they retired to Hells kitchen after a stop off at the only place in Heaven that made a decent ham sandwich, there to enjoy a hellishly good coffee and sushi to die for.
