On a dark and stormy Friday, way back in the year 1492, a young lad by the name of Jesus Marvin Christ was preparing for his execution. He was to be hung on a crucifix until the life drained from his body.
Don’t worry, things get happier… right after the whipping part. And the part where they mock him and give him a crown of thorns. And the part where he had to carry his cross up a big hill. And the part where they gave him putrid wine and Jesus was like, “nah, I don’t drink.” Then there was the part where they jabbed him with a spear. And of course there was the whole dying thing.
They called this day “Good Friday” …because of course they did.

I got home that Friday night, stripping off my rain-soaked clothes and turning on the television to find a breaking news story about a man who had jumped off of the Brooklyn Bridge. At first, I wasn’t surprised. The story went on to say that emergency units arrived shortly after he jumped, but he had drowned by the time they had gotten to him. They tried resuscitating him, but it was simply too late. Police had searched the body for anything to identify the jumper with, and lucked out when they found his wallet.
A S H T O N: It was a stormy Friday night and you could hear the rain pounding on the windows like it was begging to come in. You and your boyfriend Ashton were stuck in your shared apartment bored out of your minds. You two are cuddling on the couch, your head in his lap and his fingers running through your hair, just laying there in the comforting tapping of the rain.
