This morning on the bus, a man was handing out fliers that depicted “THE RAPTURE.” It had a little diagram of people rising up into the air, and all I could think of was that episode of “Six Feet Under” when the church lady got into an accident after she saw escaped blow-up dolls full of helium rising into the sky. At the very moment I was thinking about this, the automated stop announcement system chimed in: “WESTERN AVE AND KINNIARD ST.” It was eardrum-splitting loud, and I forgot all about the Rapture.
