In heaven, every angel gets a lovely pearl-studded sea urchin when they go on their first flight. It’s actually a sweet little ceremony, unless they, like, misjudge the distance and velocity or something. Which happens, and usually makes Elysium’s Funniest Home Videos every time.
Maybe that’s not a sea urchin. It’s got a certain aquatic life form happening, though, like a cuttlefish maybe, or some sort of drifting member of Cnidaria which just happened to sprout hands. And a flower.
Could also be a cunning angel trap. Lure them in with a pretty flower, wait for them to land and stop fluttering, then…BAM. We’re having soup tonight!!
Of course, you have to pick the pearls out, but that’s half the fun. It’s like, “ooh, you’re the winner!”
Once more, from the rear.
I imagine there’s some part of this that’s supposed to be comforting. I’m not comforted. No no. The word is “imperiled.” Is this the time Giant Hands Man gets whimsical? Is this my last cotton candy floaty cushion?
Life is brief. Take time to smell the pearl clusters.
