In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"As El Diablo sailed gracefully over the back fence, he took a glance over his shoulder at Sam, who was befuddled. If Sam were capable of detecting the various expressions on Diablo's face, he would have noticed that the most prominent feature was a roguish grin, smeared from ear to ear. As Diablo's feet touched the grass on the other side, his mind raced with ideas as to how he would enjoy his newfound freedom. Escaping was simple this morning. The humans must have been up too late watching television--typical. He would probably stop by to occasionally look in on them, from afar, until he decided to actually come home. Oh, he was planning to return perhaps he wasn't human, but he wasn't stupid either; he knew which side his bread was buttered on. He simply felt that he was due for a holiday."
