I'm sitting on a small piece of cloud and feel my buttocks slip through the holes where the condensation is more scattered. It's not as comfortable as I thought in the waiting room in Heaven. On my right, a bull that looks like he missed puberty, with his nose stuck in a flower bouquet , flips through Home & Garden Heavenly Edition. His name is Ferdinand. On the left, a priest anxiously rubs his gold chains with the stitch's sleeve, arranging them in the order of the size of the crosses. Maybe I was in a hurry when I signed up so fast on that online platform.
