Stairway to Heaven

Brett has ascended. She is no longer of this earth. Luckily a local lampost witnessed the ascention, recording the dialogue on a secret tape recorder. The lampost stood very still throughout but promptly alerted Campbell after the last of Brett's beautiful foot disappeared into the clouds.

Brett: "Thank you, Lord, for showing me the way. I want to come and love your sky. Please show me how to get on the ladder. Amen."

God: "That's all right, angel. When you coming round?"

Brett: "Right now, if you'd just give me a hand-up. Why do you put your ladders in such awkward places?"

God: "I like to watch you look helpless."

Brett: "Watch it."

God: "Angel, before you can come to Heaven you have to know who's master."

Brett: "I surrender. You are my master."
