Reviewing your behavior of the past year, you keep asking yourself why you were so thoughtless, so uncaring, and, shall we mildly say, a little bit unkind. You know that eventually that behavior will catch up to you and there will be h... to pay. The day is now scheduled. The second of the summer series. Time to up your courage. You know it will be difficult. You know you will be suffering. You know it is everything you dread. Alas, you know it must be done. For your misdeeds of the past year cannot be dismissed. To reduce a prolonged stay in Purgatory, you can work time off by hiking in the Florida summer. It will be ugly. There will be mosquitoes. Deer flies. Oppressive heat. Shirt soaking humidity. And this is all for your benefit. Pay now or pay later. Who's in?
