reverse rapture

I don't like pictures of people floating up into the sky in the rapture. I think they are silly. So I thought I'd add to the silliness by presenting another theory that it's not the people who are raptured, but their clothes.

I will go back and tag each one with this name so that you can follow her journey. It has been a long and treacherous journey for her. However, now she has stumbled across an old abandoned library in the middle of the … [Read more...]
