I write better when I smoke. Don’t ask me to reduce it to a science.

Back in hell

It is said that once every millenium, the Devil decrees a perfect day in hell. All the fires die down and a cool breeze blows through, bringing with it the scent of jasmine. On that day, the boiling lakes of sulphur turn into placid seas, the thorns on the whips of the demons all blossom into soft-petaled roses, and the torturers themselves administer healing ointments and tender reassurances. On that day, all the screaming and weeping and wailing of the imprisoned souls turn into a huge sigh of relief.

And then, just as abruptly, the Devil returns everything to the way it was.

This, it is said, was the Devil’s unique addition to the tortures of his domain: the reminder to all imprisoned there that they were, in fact, in hell.

Today, I woke up from a dream and realized that it was just a dream. My perfect day had ended and I was back in hell.

Former prezzies, by their definition, face no such prohibition. But in the same breath, Maceda also sez that they know an Erap candidacy will be the subject of a disqual case – but […]
  • Escalation 30 December 2008
    I still think the Pangandaman’s shouldn’t have retaliated even if dela Paz threw the first punch. But is anyone really surprised at the escalation in the story-telling on both sides? BTW, I think we can dispense with the age angle nao.
  • Etiquette 29 December 2008
    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
