Garden of Eden

Garden of Eden by Michelangelo

“Lord, I have a problem.”

“What is it, Eve?”

“I know that you created me and provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, especially that hilarious snake, but I’m just not happy.”

“And why is that Eve?”

“Lord, I’m lonely, and I’m sick to death of apples.”

“Well, Eve, in that case I have a solution. I shall create a man for you.”

“Man? What is that Lord?”

“A flawed creature with many bad traits. He’ll lie, cheat and be vain. All in all he’ll give you a hard time, but he’ll be bigger and faster and will like to hunt and kill things. I’ll create him in such a way that he will satisfy your physical needs. He will be witless and will revel in childish things like fighting and kicking a ball about.  He won’t be as smart as you, so he will also need your advice to think properly.”

“Sounds great,” says Eve, with ironically raised eyebrows, ” but what’s the catch?”

“Well,…..you can have him on one condition.”

“And what’s that Lord? ”

“Well, since he’ll be proud, arrogant and self-admiring, you’ll have to let him believe that I made him first. And it will have to be our little secret .. you know, woman to woman.” ;-)

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for listing my blog on your blog list.

    This post reminded me a bit of Mark Twain’s Eve’s Diary: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/8525/8525-h/8525-h.htm

    If you haven’t already, take a gander.
