Jesus Christ Superslacker
Rowan Davies

      Meeting God in heaven had never been on Tim’s ‘to do’ list and, unlike most people who use that particular term of speech carelessly, he had actually made one in his life. When the meeting surprisingly did occur however, it didn’t go particularly smoothly at first. After initially mistaking the Almighty for his lifelong idol, Albert Einstein, he then instantly proceeded into a confused rambling.
      ‘I’m sorry, it’s the moustache, I just thought it was smaller. Is this a dream? Socrates, right?’
      The old man looked drawn and pale. Long white hair flowed around his lips and from his head, rolling over onto a pristine white suit. Behind him stood two gates that glistened and sparkled in the light, making everything that Tim had previously thought of as perfect or beautiful fade away into insignificance. It was all so right, even the old man’s Bugs Bunny tie somehow complimented the scene.
      ‘No, dear friend, I am God, the Almighty. Welcome to the Pearly Gates of Heaven.’ His voice was slow and booming, everything Tim had come to expect from the single creator of the entire world, an idea he had shunned all of his life. It had simply seemed so ridiculous.
      ‘Sorry, Erm, you’ll understand if I seem a bit put out, it’s just that – well – I can’t say that I’ve ever really believed in your existence. That’s not to say I didn’t want to of course, it’s really just not that easy when you’re actually down there on the planet.’
      God’s face was one of utter confusion, the kind an old man might have pulled on forgetting the whereabouts of his false teeth before bedtime.
      ‘What on Earth do you mean, dear boy?’ He smirked slightly at the pun before appearing slightly miffed. ‘How much will it take to convince you people that I’m really up here? Admittedly, it’s been a long time since I myself have actually done anything, but still –.’
      ‘I – I guess it’s just a question of perspective.’ Tim was floundering a bit, finding it hard not to stutter and stumble through his sentences when every emotion was being conjured within him. He was talking to God after all.
      ‘Perspective? What’s perspective got to do with it? When I say I haven’t done anything recently, I mean I’ve had no need to. That’s why I sent Jehovah down there. Don’t you read your history books, boy? He’s my son, I sent him to Earth to control and educate your kind on such matters as my existence.’
      ‘Ah – Yes, but that was years ago. He –’
      ‘Precisely my point, Mr, er –’
      ‘Tim – just … Tim’
      ‘Well, Mr Tim, as I was saying, I think you’ve had long enough to learn about me. He’s been down there more than two-thousand years sorting you lot out for heaven’s sake. You should all be avid believers of my godly prowess by now.’
      Christ, thought Tim, the Lord Almighty is addressing me personally. This really takes the biscuit.
      ‘But God, erm, Sir, we’re –’ Get your perspectives right, Tim. ‘They’re all still awaiting the second coming.’
      ‘What? After all the trouble I went through the first time, you lot want another? Isn’t one messiah enough? My dear boy, Impregnating virgins isn’t as easy’ He hesitated slightly. ‘or as fun as it may sound, especially from all the way up here.’
      ‘No, Sir, what I mean to say is that he left us all those centuries ago and, for most of us, neither our memories nor our individual lifespans really allow us to believe in such things anymore.’ Tim didn’t dare suggest that it might have been a major design flaw on the creator’s part. ‘Nowadays the belief has pretty much –’ Tim stopped. God’s eyes had glazed over a couple of seconds back.
      ‘Left you? Centuries ago?’ Realisation seemed to be spreading across his pasty face. Then it hit him. ‘That – little – bastard. I knew I should never have lent him the car.’
