Make the Most of Your VisitLeave a comment
Sooooooo, you’re dead. 🪦
Hey, that’s okay! We all die. No biggie.
But now that you’re dead, you find yourself pulling up to a (DUH-DUH-DUH!) gas station.
If that freaks you out, don’t worry. Lots of people who visit Desert Skies aren’t sure what to do when they first get here. The shock of having just departed the Physical Plane can be a bit overwhelming. It’s like one second you’re slicing avocados with a dull knife and the next, well, you know.
So we want to make the transition as easy for you as possible. We asked the staff to give some advice on making your first and last visit to Desert Skies as seamless and enjoyable as possible.
Here’s what they had to say!
“Gas stations are supposed to be fun. It’s like a grocery store but without all that healthy shit you feel guilty about not buyin’! And somethin’ super important to remember, never feel guilty for pickin’ out whatever the heck you want. YOU. ARE. DEAD. All the people you were tryin’ to impress on the Physical Plane, you don’t have to think about ’em no more.
And another thing. We love when you like the stuff in the gas station! It’s a compliment when you walk outta here, arms overflowin’ with burritos, and pickled pigs feet, and tera-seraphic soda. You do you, girl!”
Shirley (honorary staff for as long as she’s willing)
“Well, I believe a gas station can be a magical, peaceful, restful place for a traveler, and one of the worst things you can do is come in here, guns-a-blazing, demanding things and not taking the time to just rest a little. Get to know the people here. Partake in meaningful conversations Take a seat at the small dining table for a while. There’s no rush. Rushing was something you did on the physical plane, but now you have all the time in the world. Use it to your advantage.”
“I am of the opinion that Desert Skies Astral Plane Fuel and Service station is meant to serve the purpose of helping travelers to transition from one state of existence to another. The Attendant and Mechanic are particularly adept at easing travelers whose transition to the Astral Plane has left them in a state of confusion or regret. Oh, and ask the Mechanic to tell you a joke. He is truly gifted in the art of comedy.”
And from me, the Attendant
Don’t be afraid to open up a little. We’ve met lots of people here, and we’ve heard some stories that would absolutely rock your brain, but nothing that surprises us anymore. As people, we all have things we haven’t taken the time to deal with, we all have regrets about things we’ve done in the past, we all benefit when we stop running away from our stories long enough to meet them head on. Here at Desert Skies, we’re happy to give you the space you need to do that. Take us up on it.
