The Do-Over by Robert J. Wheeler
Rob The Playwright dies without finishing his comedy I’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone. STELLA, God's special angel, is dispatched to find him a temporary body so he can finish his play. Stella is perturbed to find Rob is a difficult subject as he won’t accept bodies she has presented to him. Rob objects to a female body, then is delirious about having breasts but has second thoughts about the transfer as he moans “nothing’s swinging below deck”. When Rob finds out Stella is one mistake away from playing for the Other team he is concerned about her mistake causing him to take the torturous red-eye ride into Hell.
