Fun Stuff To Do This Weekend…
So, in case you missed my status update over on Facebook, tomorrow is “The Rapture,” whereby all radio stations in the world will play that song by Blondie for 24 hours straight.
Okay, not really. It’s actually crazier than that. Apparently, The Rapture means this: “…when in the End Times the Christians will be gathered together in the air to meet Christ.”
Why they chose the air and not a great all-you-can-eat Chinese food buffet is beyond me, but maybe it has something to do with frequent flier miles. I dunno…seems like it would be cheaper to arrange the restaurant than it would be to pay for all those air traffic controllers to not fall asleep and make sure none of the “chosen ones” collided with each other. Just sayin’.
In any event, if you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, I suggest taking all your old clothes and shoes and laying them out in a way that suggests you were just zapped up in the Rapture. This is especially fun to do with dry ice in your shoes to really give that effect for your neighbors. A sign saying “Later suckers!” would probably really rub salt into the wound as well. Y’know, have fun with the day.
OR you could get a FREE sneak-peek at the latest Lawson adventure THE SHEPHERD by emailing me a copy of a receipt for another Lawson adventure and I’ll shoot you out the first 3 chapters of this new adventure (unproofed). So, if you’ve bought a novel, novella, or even a short story – get the receipt and zap me a copy of it. I’ll send you out a .pdf as soon as possible. Email it to jonfmerz AT verizon DOT net
