Wings are heavy. Horns are light as a feather.

by Lynn on December 6, 2013

This is going to sound odd, but I’m afraid of angels.
Whenever I see one, I feel sorry for her.

Can you imagine wearing a heavy pair of wings all the time?
I couldn’t tolerate the burdensome weight on my back
…which doesn’t bode well for my future in the afterlife.

Speaking of which…

Problem is, I like warm weather.
Perhaps I’m fated to travel “south” after my demise.

Yep, these angels know I’m struggling to get into Heaven.
Perhaps I can bribe them with an extra piece of pie.

Which will work best?
Pumpkin? Or Apple?

I agree – those wings DO look cumbersome! But the advantage would be that I could fan myself to cool off from my ever-lasting freakin’ hot flashes! Even if I were in HEAVEN, I’d feel like I was in HELL!

I have a bad feeling trying to bribe an angel would backfire even if you picked their favorite kind of pie, since bribery is also a crime. But you might get points for offering the angels some pie just out of the goodness of your heart. And maybe some aspirin in case those wings give them a backache.

Neither….I’m thinking angel food cake! :)

I always assumed angel wings were somehow light like fairy wings, though I suppose they’re more like bird wings.

I think the ability to fly would compensate for the weight. Flying would be awesome. But not in one of those gowns. Tights and a swimsuit would be enough.

What? It’s what all the superheroes wear. Sheesh.
