Well, that's a relief!
George and Darcy play hockey. George swings the puck towards Darcy. "We are very old, but we’re not in heaven yet, so we can play hockey."
Darcy likes this idea. "Yeah, we’re old."
"Does that mean you can’t play hockey in heaven?" I ask, casually. Yes, I am playing with their heads, shit-disturber that I am. Shut it.
The boys stop playing, stand upright in consternation. It's a Radical Thought. Heaven without hockey? Impossible! A place without hockey is, by definition, That Other Place. What a conundrum. Is there a solution?
Yes! and George knows it. "Oh, yes you can! There’s ice on the clouds!"
