A little late, but happy hogswatch friends!

Death found Pestilence in a hospice in Llamedos. Pestilence liked hospitals. There
was always something for him to do. Currently he was trying to remove the ‘Now Wash Your Hands’ sign over a cracked basin.

“There should be a word for that brief period just after waking when the mind is full of warm pink nothing.  You lie there entirely empty of thought, except for a growing suspicion that heading towards you, like a sockful of damp sand in a nocturnal alleyway, are all the recollections you’d really rather do without, and which amount to the fact that the only mitigating factor in your horrible future is the certainty that it will be quite short.”

– Terry Pratchett – Mort

“It would seem that you have no useful skill or talent whatsoever,’ he said.  ‘Have you thought of going into teaching?’

Death’s face was a mask of terror.  Well it was always a mask of terror, but this time he meant it to be.”

“Oh,” he said.

YES, said Death.

“Not even time to finish my cake?”

NO. THERE IS NO MORE TIME, EVEN FOR CAKE. FOR YOU, THE CAKE IS OVER. YOU HAVE REACHED THE END OF CAKE.

Go away and stop bothering me!
