Said the...Demon

After a long day of tempting and mischief, two tiny, plump demons are winding down with excessive amounts of libation and a frank discussion.

We join their conversation, already in progress.

    "What is it with people and their obsession with transcendence?" slurred one demon to his inebriated cohort.

    "I mean, they're always looking to transcend something—in art, in spirit, in effort—that they completely ignore the real and precious gift that is the here and now.

    "But I guess that's actually good for us, right? I mean, it definitely makes our jobs easier, assuming they don't actually find anything. Hmmm..."

    And after a long and thoughtful pause, the demon added, "A toast, then, to those in search of transcendence — may it be the golden carrot that's always just out of reach. CHEERS!"

    The End
