Heaven’s Cool


It’s pretty hot here.


Not as hot as it is elsewhere, say in BC, but it is as hot as I can remember it. Yes, my memory is less than perfect and bad things do fade with time, but the fact remains that it is very hot.


Well, it is now 8:00PM and there is a mild wind so that sitting outside in the shade is just edging into tolerable from FUCKING HOT! You may have guessed that I am not a sun worshiper. Our ancestors have spent thousands of years designing and manufacturing systems to keep us warm and safe when the elements turn nasty. For the most part they have had success. I don’t think that we have been as successful keeping cool in the hot summer.  I suppose that eventually we will be able to live under a dome with perfectly controlled seasons. I can’t wait!


Well, I have to wait. The problem is that I don’t think I will live long enough and if I die and there is nothing to reincarnation then that’s it. I guess that Heaven would be cool, but it isn’t a gimme  that I will end up in Heaven. From all accounts, Hell is pretty hot too. I may get there and be able to say “This isn’t hot! I remember back in 2021 just at the end of that Covid mess it got really hot. My sweat was sweating! No, this is alright, any chance of getting a cool drink?”


I shouldn’t take the chance. 


There may have been one or two moral lapses over the years and I could have been nicer to people, even the assholes. No, but I could lie about how I feel and while I am at it I can say that I found Jesus in a heat induced hallucination. Yeah…that and a $20  donation to Billy Graham should buy me a spot in Heaven. I’m not expecting a really good spot, just one that is cooler than it is in Calgary today.

  1. Hot here but the breeze off the water has a cooling effect, so much that we sit out on the patio all day under the umbrella! B
