Overheard in Heaven


Hi! Wanda.


Hi! Sylvia. How’d you die?


I froze to death.


How horrible!


It wasn’t so bad. After I quit shaking from

the cold, I began to get warm & sleepy,

and finally died a peaceful death.

What about you?


I died of a massive heart attack.

I suspected that my husband was cheating,

so I came home early to catch him in the act.

But instead, I found him all by himself

in the den watching TV.


So, what happened?


I was so sure there was another woman

there somewhere that I started running

all over the house looking. I ran up into

the attic and searched, and down into the

basement. Then I went through every closet

and checked under all the beds. I kept this up

until I had looked everywhere, and finally

I became so exhausted that I just keeled over

with a heart attack and died.


Too bad you didn’t look in the freezer

—we’d both still be alive.

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
