Have you seen the movie Devils Advocate? It’s one of my favourites and last night I was watching it for the umpteenth time. Just at the crucial moment everything went dark! The power had failed. I have a candle at hand for just such events, but try as may I couldn’t get it to light. As I sat there trying to come up with a plan of action there was a bang on the door.
I felt my way along the wall in the general direction of the door and just as I got there something fell onto the floor. I could just make out an envelope at my feet. Somebody had it pushed it through my letterbox. I pulled the door open and looked up and down the road and just as I did so, a full moon peeped out from behind the clouds. I just made out the shape of a little man in a black cloak scurrying down the road. He stopped, looked back at me and grinned a devilish grin. It was probably a trick of the moonlight, but I felt sure he had a pair of horns on his head! I told myself not to be stupid and found my way back to my sitting room. Just then, in the darkness I heard something smash.
Sure enough this is my 666th post. I had planned some witty poem or story making a joke at the devils expense, but under the circumstances I thought better of it! As he said, he'll be watching!
