"Ezines... that's what I can do," Bert thought as he considered his future after leaving policing, sipping on a triple mezcal, "real crime ezines, with a dollop of the metaphyical... write what I know."

"Now, Bert," said Ernie, the long-lost friend and platonic former roommate of Bert on a squeaky-clean and beloved children's show, so we should probably keep within those lines, "no more mezcal; bartender, a couple of Guittard hot chocolates, please, heavy on the cinnamon and whipped cream".

"Cinnamon and Whipped Cream, the country duo - I had no idea they were playing in Rome!" cried Mary, as Insanity produced concert tickets, bought using a credit card which he had absolutely no chance of ever paying off, "Oh Ethel, Insanity is really spoiling us!"

In a welter of thoughts, regrets, conflicting emotions, already misbegotten plans (which included more mescal), Bert, the soon to be ex-cop, wondered how the homoerotic muppet Ernie escaped, long buried in the cellar of his psyche.

"Cheer up Bert", said Ronald McDonald, who'd just walked into the bar with Scaramouche (Ronald had recently lost his job with McDonalds), "Mouchie and I have both just started jobs at Jimmy McCracken's Circus and as luck would have it, the knife thrower needs a new assistant, so I'll put a word in for you, shall I?"

Loyal though they were to the circus, Moochie and Ronnie couldn't resist taking a ride out of it during a show one evening and into Purgatory on their clownmobile, where they were angrily told by a Ship of Fools host, "This is a place for serious discussion, so get back to the circus NOW!!!", and after returning, received another rollicking from Jimmy McCracken, the circus owner.

"Way out", said Moochie, smoking a joint, as he and Ronnie and Bert and some other friends from the circus took advantage of the still unlocked thread to have an end of thread party, which went on long into the night.

Invisible to his own mind, Lucifer finally woke up in Pete's Pearly Diner, just inside the gates of Heaven, next to the Welcome Center and the tour bus station; and, just then, Mary Magdalene plopped a laminated menu down on the table in front of Lucifer, and asked "Coffee?"

"Er, no," said Mary Magdalene, switching the coffee pot to her other hand; "Lutherans, through and through; and Herself has been known to wander around, singing the 'Java Jive', and to pull newbies into a production of Bach's 'Coffee Cantata'."

"Fergus, when you said you were going to take me to the edge of Heaven, this isn't quite what I had in mind", said Liz, as the two of them sat inside Pete's Pearly Diner with their coffees, sausage rolls and Club bars (which was all the diner seemed to sell).

"California dreamin', on such a winter's dayyyyy," sang Mary Magdalene, as she wandered and refilled coffee; then someone joined in with a deep "Went into a churrrrrch I found along the wayyyy", and the someone turned out to be Satan, and Maggie smiled.

Maggie smiled as she and Lutan (as Satan/Lucifer now referred to himself) watched Mr Nobody from the diner window, resentfully driving the 'poxy f***ing' Heaven tour bus which was of course, a driverless vehicle.

"Down we go", said Lutan, as the old Ship of Fools sank to the bottom of the sea in order to make way for the new one, "We've had a good innings - I would have been surprised if they'd carried this thread over onto the new blub blub blub blub..."
