Soooooo. It's Monday. I'm still here. If you're reading this, you must have missed out on the rapture too.
At first, I was a little bummed when Saturday came and went without so much as a hiccup. No earthquakes. No tempests. Not even a single zombie. I mean, I'm a reasonably decent person. I recycle. I don't talk on my cell phone in the movie theatre. I try not to tailgate. Do none of these things qualify me?
But then I did a head count. Guess what? No one in my family was raptured either. Nor were any of my friends. My gnomies, Janiel and Russo, are still here. (Seriously, I thought for sure Janiel would have been raptured at least.)
Actually, I'm kinda glad. There are still lots of things to look forward to: Pirates 4, Harry Potter, X-Men. Would you believe I haven't even read HUNGER GAMES yet? Not to mention the final book in the SHIVER series, because I cannot leave this world without knowing what happens to Grace and Sam. Sorry. Can't do it. And dude! We don't want to miss out on Janiel and Russo's books when they get published, right?
If I were to wax philosophical, and I often do, I'd say the End-That-Wasn't is a sign that there's still plenty of Gnomes out there who need slaying. Plenty of good still left to be done in the world. Just a thought.
How about you guys? What are some things you're looking forward to, or perhaps some Gnomes you'd like to take on, now that we know life is going to march on just as before?
