June 29, 2012, “I am going to pay for that on judgment day,” my friend said as we walked into our small office.
“I wish that’s all I had to worry about on my day of judgment!” I told him. My mind was digging deep into the memories of a life lived hard. Memories I refused to share with friends and colleagues here.

Judgment day: a rock bench and sundial was all that sat between the pearly gate and me. The sundial was a curious piece, the sun was not visible from that realm but it still created a prominent shadow. The shadow only moved if I willed it to and it was just as sporadic as my will.
“Mr. Nelson,” a voice called as the gate opened.
“You didn’t make it. On June 29, 2012 you lied to your boss,” the voice said.
“Oh come on!”
