The twenty-ninth question for the Q&A section of this blog is: “When have you come closest to meeting the devil?”
This is a hard question to answer, as I’m not exactly sure how to take it. I’ve never really had a near death experience, so I can’t go that direction with it, and the most ‘evil’ I’ve encountered in a person, if I’m to interpret it that way, was in someone I briefly mentioned before in this blog, but once again, I can’t really get into the details of that here. Even then, though, I wouldn’t say he was like the devil; he wasn’t all bad, he was just…really screwed up, and it caused him to do some terrible things. Though I guess if you look at it in the sense that the devil is a fallen angel, maybe that’s actually more fitting.
Anyway, I don’t know; I don’t think I’ve ever really come close to meeting the devil, unless that counts, or I can be considered to have met the devil when I read Anne Rice’s “Memnoch the Devil” 😛 So I don’t really have an answer to this. Moving on, I guess! Next week’s question is going to be very hard; I’ll need to do a lot of thinking on that one.
See you Tuesday for the Host epilogue! Woooo!
