Life Rapture Ready

I have seen the Rapture. Or, at least, I have seen its annual Christmas Day approximation. And I have to say, it’s really quite nice.
When I was young I used to spend Christmas Day feeling left behind. But these days I like to wander the empty city in the morning, when everyone’s at home opening presents and it’s nothing but us Jews (along with Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, chronic innebriates, and assorted apostates) out on the streets.
I always think: If the Rapture really comes, and all the Christians in the world (or most of them, or, at least, a bunch of them) are whisked up to Heaven, this is exactly what it will feel like. An abandoned city. A reign of other religions.
Sure, it’s somewhat lonely. But that’s why, the rest of the year, I like hanging out with Christian sinners. I know, in The End, they’ll never leave me.
