It's in the mail

The angel and the old man were yelling at each other.

The old man was leaning forward in his chair on the porch, his hand cupped to his ear. “What?!” he bellowed. “Speak up!”

The angel shouted, “Your vocation! I’ve got your vocation for you!”


“It got lost, and didn’t get delivered when it should’ve been! But we can tell you now!”

“Speak up!” The old man squinted into the light. “What?!”

“It’s the vocation you’ve always wanted! Don’t you want to hear it?”
