This is a short story by Terry Pratchett involving Death and a philosopher. You know the kind that tries to argue you into their way by referring to metaphysics, mixing in the quantum state of being. The one you want to drown if he wasn’t dead already or if you as the philosopher he is not dead and should continue existing. Death and What Comes Next is kudos for those bargain stories where humans deal with Death or the Devil to get what they want and in this case to keep on living.
You can find the story on LSpace. It is a quick read and funny as well. I kind of feel for Death. To hear the same lines and attempts again and again and to see the other one thinking how novel they are being. It was the same I had with my work when people came up with the same jokes, and I wish I could have argued back as Death did. Not that my job was anything exciting, but I am sure you know what I mean and have had several similar experiences.
Thank you for reading!
