Tuesday’s Word

Nephilim

Sloth
noun
1. Apathy and inactivity in the practice of virtue (personified as one of the deadly sins)
2. Any of several slow-moving arboreal mammals of South America and Central America; they hang from branches back downward and feed on leaves and fruits
3. A disinclination to work or exert yourself

   Though a cold January night, a crowd surged down the street. Frosty puffs of breath swirled around the people hurrying to nightclubs and bars ready to get drunk or laid. Their eagerness and desperation perfumed the chilly air.
   Sloth, the angel thought. Absolute sloth. Why isn’t anything done about it?
   But he wasn’t here to worry over these sweating, sinning mortals. There had been a breach of gigantic proportions. If it didn’t get fixed, they would all pay.
