Life 2 (based on icon from tamnonlinear)


There is a knock on St. Peter's door. He looks out and a man
is standing there. St. Peter is about to begin his interview
when the man disappears.

A short time later there's another knock. St. Peter gets the
door, sees the man, opens his mouth to speak, and the man
disappears once again.

"Hey, are you playing games with me?" St. Peter calls after

"No," the man's distant voice replies anxiously. "They're
trying to resuscitate me."

He got some of his clothes, his teddy bear and his piggy bank
and announced, "I'm running away from home!"
