It’s been a long day working for the postal service. ¬†You itch the polyester uniform that’s sticking to your sweaty thighs and look at your watch. ¬†Another half hour of delivering mail and you’ll be done for the day. ¬†You take a deep breath and think of that ice cold Moscow Mule you’ll be drinking soon as you cross the street to your final rows of mailboxes. ¬†In your wistful state of mind, though, you forgot to look both ways before you crossed the street and a¬†2005 Nissan Xterra plows into your fragile viscera going 45 mph, turning you into lawn fertilizer in an instant.
In a flash, you’re standing in a line wearing a bright orange speedo. ¬†It feels like it’s 400 degrees. ¬†“Am I dreaming?” you say out loud.
“Nah, you’re in hell,” says a 15 foot demon standing to the side of the line. ¬†“Welcome, by the way.”
“Wait a second! ¬†I’m a good person and I consistently went to a Methodist chu—“
“You worked for the postal service,” interrupted the demon. ¬†“No way in hell you’re going up in the clouds. ¬†You know how much it costs now to get a record shipped down here from the UK? ¬†Now shut up and wait for your surf board.”
“SURF BOARD?!” you exclaim.
“Yeah, you were randomly picked to take part in our annual Lake of Fire surf competition. ¬†Winner gets a $100 gift certificate to The Sizzler. ¬†Listen, Hell isn’t as bad as you think. ¬†We’ve got all the best music, and most of the demons are pretty cool. ¬†Just don’t get on their bad sides and you’ll be fine. ¬†HEY CHAD! ¬†Fire up the New Candys’ new one.”
A surf board flies at your face and you catch it, trembling in fear. ¬†The waves are high today.
“Watch out for the barnacles,” says the demon, as he pushes you onto the beach. ¬†“Good luck, sinner.”
