H = Hell

H - E - DOUBLE TOOTH PICKS as we used to say way back when...even as a child I was oddly fascinated with the thought of a huge horrible place where all the bad people went. At some point to find Dante's interpretation with nine areas with subsets of those nine increasingly awful places was amazing, and I felt comfort that if karma didn't get the bad guys here, the inferno waited.

First Circle/ Limbo is for the unbaptized. Second Circle is for the lustful. Third Circle is for the gluttonous. Fourth Circle is for the greedy. Fifth Circle is for the angry. Sixth Circle is for heretics. Seventh Circle is for the violent. Eighth Circle is for those who commit fraud. Ninth Circle is for traitors.

The trip through the layers of Dante's hell is quite such: a trip! Eh? I love it! It's so interesting to think of such a place... scary too, because what if I had too many cookies for breakfast? Am I doomed to the 4th layer????? Ahh!

Hope you're having a great day!!!

I really like your posts!

Best,
Natalie.

~shiver~ Sober subject for a Sunday! :) The phrase, H-E-double-toothpicks always makes me smile, though; I love the word sounds. :)

Returning a visit from the A to Z Challenge. Happy blogging!

Nice post. And I'll never look at toothpicks quite the same way again, thank you! ;o)
