LJ: Your Afterlife's Direction

"Registration form, please."

I started stammering, and the reception's smile faded. "You have filled out your registration form, haven't you?"

"I didn't know I needed a form to die."

She pursed her lips. "Triplicate, with one notarized copy at least. We do need to know where you're headed."

I counted on my fingers. If they needed three copies... "Maybe you could just call the main office..."

She sighed, punched a few numbers and picked up the handset. After a brief conversation, she set it down again. "Oh, yes, sir. He knows you very well. No doubt where you're ending up."

Damn and blast. One person already did the gates of heaven, another already made a triplicate crack. The perils of (a) writer's block all day and (b) not reading others' submissions first.

(a*) Actually, I was being a math geek all day at work. Seriously. My notebook is full of Cartesian co-ordinates. A wasted opportunity...
