“I hope you’re getting your bags packed,” said St Peter in my dream last night.
“So the time has come, has it?” said I. “My bags have been packed for a long time now.”
“I’m curious as to what you’ve got in them,” St Peter said.
“Oh, I’ll tell you. Silver, gold and few diamonds.” I said matter-of-factly.
“What?” he shrieked. “You’re bringing that stuff here? Don’t you know that the streets of heaven are lined with gold.There’s enough silver, gold and diamonds to last a lifetime.”
“A lifetime?” I smiled
“Oh, you know what I mean!” he said irritably.
“Relax old man”, I said. “Silver are the hairs on my head reflecting all the experiences of my life. Golden are all the wonderful memories I have of a wonderful life. My relationships with a special few are my diamonds.”
