So I’m sitting on the bus, or the coach, or whatever you
Want to call it.
And I’m talking to the man next to me.
You see, they’d sent me a list of things to take
On the trip a few weeks ago.
I’d packed everything they had recommended:
Integrity – Check
Happiness – Check
Personality – Check
Some intelligence – Check
Abilities – Check
And I’m thinking to myself, that this time is going
To be good.
Just then the celestial steward stepped aboard and explained to us all, but mostly for the benefit of the newbies who hadn’t done this before..
“Welcome to the bus – we’ll be dropping you off at your allocated life. As you know, when you leave the bus, you’ll forget everything about this place and where you came from. We’ll see you all on the other side. Have a great life and remember folks to enjoy yourselves.”
I heard them shouting about what I thought was my stop – and so I rushed to the door.
It was just as I stepped off the bus that I heard the driver shout that this it was not my stop.
Crap…..here we go again.
