Then, as now, End Times were nigh. There were signs and portents, and all that. During one rehearsal, when the topic came up again, I suggested that maybe the Rapture had already happened.
And we were the ones left.
My fellow-singers didn't like that too much.
Maybe I shouldn't have made that crack. I don't know.
What brought that reminiscence to mind was the Judgment Day prediction in the news. I've written about that before - and may again, tomorrow. My post was mostly serious - but there is a funny side to the latest Rapture prediction.
I linked to drawntocatholicism's post a few hours ago - but it's worth doing again. Linking, that is. In my opinion.
Humor? In a religious blog?! I've been over that before. (March 15, 2011)
