When I was up in Heaven, I really was expecting an office metaphor. I was expecting a hierarchy of angels milling around in a bullpen doing all kinds of angel jobs that for some reason involve typing and filing, and a special elevator that goes straight up to Godís office, which is on the top floor and really nicely decorated.
Thatís not what itís like, though.
Heaven is just like here. Like Earth. I mean, itís exactly like Earth. The only difference is that the people who are still alive on the first Earth arenít here, and everyone on this Earth remembers their lives on the first Earth. And what do people do? Nothing! They just sit around talking about what they did before! And everyoneís so jaded!
The bad part is this: It was starting to rub off on me. I was starting to feel as apathetic and world-weary as these nostalgic jerks! I was thinking that maybe Iíd kill myself a couple of times, just so I could feel innocent and energetic again!
