Jennifer, my wife had just begun dating me. This was way back, if you don’t know me well enough by now. Yeah, I’ve been married twelve years now, but we first met fourteen years ago. We met at AT&T, we were both IPhone techs. So yeah, for some weird reason we were in New York City. I don’t even know how we could afford it on our salary, but we made the trip and were going to see the sights because one of our friends at AT&T had a relative who worked on the Blue Beam install for the city. Something about The Mayor hooking up with The President and blah blah blah, it’s all pretty boring stuff to me. But we were going to go check it out because it was a once in a lifetime type of thing, and we didn’t want to VR it later, so yeah… We went.

We got there and everything was fine until this crazy tall red haired lady was dancing, or zooming, I don’t really know which… But it was like she was on roller-skates without being on roller-skates. Yeah, she was zooming here and there in and out on 5th avenue, starting around 40th street, and I was with Jennifer getting a gelato and there she was, kind of scooping up a small cup and off she went. I dragged Jennifer along and we called out to her. For some reason she stopped and we caught up to her and we were out of breath, but her hair was all fiery like some sort of brand from days of yore. And she asked us what we wanted, and we just wanted to tag along. She told me that we had to be quick so she gave us these little pellets we placed underneath our shoes and we could skate/dance like her, so off we went.

She must have been ordering online because everywhere she went, she was just scooping stuff up, like she had already ordered it and the shopkeepers would smile and wave and say something about the invoice already dropped in her inbox. It was a little wild and zany as we made it almost twenty blocks down to 60th street and Jennifer and I were carrying all these bags and I even had a fur coat stuffed on top of everything so it was hard to see anything at all over it. It was a gray and white stoat coat so it had a little weight. She got to the end of her little jaunt and side eyed us and told us to never tell anyone where we were about to go so we said that was fine and she went into an alley and down a bit and into a small back door to a clinic.

Well you could tell right away that things weren’t legit because inside we went and it was crammed with all these little booths and women were manufacturing this white dough and placing it into these little cellophane rappers, and it had people’s names on it. I saw Scarlett Johansson’s name on one and then suddenly the “madam” of the place was all over us, who were we normies and how did we get in, but the actress we came with, and I can’t recall but she looked like Jessica Chastain or Isla Fisher but it wasn’t either one of them, but she said it was ok, so the lady left it at that. And we were left asking if we wanted to try a sample because our friend was there so why not?

Jennifer and I looked at each other and then at the white stuff and then at the women giving the little micro injections of it into our new friend’s face and said no thanks. That was that, the samples were taken away and we didn’t think anything of it until we saw some Pilipino kids being brought in the back door and hurried into a basement and then there was screaming and then we all left anyway and I was sick to my stomach with it all until the lady said it was time for more gelato and we were back outside and across the street to another gelato store. The event was starting soon and she didn’t want to miss it.

We went in and it seemed there had been people of hers waiting for her because we were instructed to hand over the merchandise to them and that she was off and that we could buy anything we wanted because she was part owner of the place. So the men took our stuff and she asked me “for a little sugar, honey” so I tried to kiss her on the cheek but she turned her head at a quick snap and i kissed her tongue instead. “That’s all the stardom you’ll ever get, kissing my cock” she told us, and zipped out the front door while Jennifer smoldered hot behind me as I watched her leave. But she had said tongue, but I knew what she meant and I turned and saw Jennifer and she forgave me because I only wanted to kiss her cheek and then we hugged and I told her that I didn’t want fame anymore and she said that was probably for the best. That kind of fame was evil and then she reminded me that YHVH told Abraham that He would make his name great and I said that’s the kind I wanted.

So we were walking out the door and she was right, the event had already started because the sky was a painting of some grandiose planetary alignment, the kind you only see in movies in IMAX like Avatar or one of the newer Star Wars films where they are on some distant moon looking up at the sky and there’s crazy asteroid belts and planets and a huge planet that takes up three quarters of the sky. Anyway, with a show like that, you know that every helicopter and drone and ultralight were up in the air, and the sky was thick with em. And it was massive. Like, better than the blue-beam show they put on for the twin towers when they blew those up. I mean it wasn’t two fake airplanes this time and some controlled demolition, this was a sky full of planets and it was crazy.

And they timed it just right with the actual eclipse and you could see the light changing, but in the fake show above us, all the planets were moving to come into unison and there was this glorious triumphant symphony playing from somewhere, everywhere, even our little pellets under our shoes. We took those off and went outside and looked up and around and walked down the street a little during the eclipse and came to a little bridge, because we were at the Conservatory Waters over there in Central Park South, with all the little children’s statues everywhere and we were standing there and wandered next to Jerry Seinfeld with a couple of his friends. And this was right at the central line of the whole show, where the sky show and Project Blue Beam were all coming to a head, and things were just spectacular.

But then right in the middle of it, I looked down, and there were these people who weren’t there before, and they were all dressed up in a fashionable 1971 style, with polyester suits and great sundresses and bouffant hair and everyone was wearing pastels and I motioned for Jennifer to look down and Jerry Seinfeld saw us looking down and said “Hi” to one of the men lying there. And that’s what was weird, they were all lying down. Some were lying in the water, some on the ground, but the ground was literally end to end with them, and not one of them was moving. The man Jerry said “Hi” to was waving back asking how Jerry was and things were fine for a minute but then Jerry asked why the man wasn’t in the show.

And so the man told Jerry that he had been demoted, he had the Prion Star Crown Demotement but Jerry didn’t know what that was so the man goes about telling him about the Prion Crown and how The Spirit of Judgement from the Seven Spirits came and placed it on his head and moved him from the sky to the earth. I wondered about the Bible verse about the stars being thrown down from the heavens but I didn’t think it was this soon. So Jerry wondered about all the other stars laying on the ground, and the one man told him that this was just for me to see, but Jerry didn’t know who I was and asked, and I just told him that I was only a man sent by YHVH to bring about the change in the earth and judgement started in New York City. And Jerry just leaned his head back a little and said “Aaahhh” and told me that I would get along great with his grandfather. But the sun was coming back and the show had all sorts of angels in it but the man on the ground told us they were actually not angels and Jerry and I looked at each other and said: “figures” at the same time.

So then the show was over, but I was watching the people on the ground fading away. And the man waved goodbye to Jerry and he waved back and all went back to normal except for the list of credits and sponsors being played in the sky. So Jerry turned to me and said “see ya” and I told him the same thing except he paused kinda and turned back to me, his friends still walking away and told me “that guy” he said, pointing to the ground “he got me into show business” and turned and walked away and then Jennifer took my hand and told me we should probably get something to eat.
