When the opening line speaks of keeping a god under the sink, it's hard not to be interested. The god in this story, though, is no happy god of kitchens. Ultimately, what is intriguing about this story is the notion that people might prefer to live their lives in fear of something, always trying to appease it in the hope of good fortune and, rather than defeat a monster, would at best exchange it for another.
