17 The way it Actually Happened

17 The way it Actually Happened

One day in the garden of Eden, Eve calls out to God: "Lord, I have a problem!"
"What is the problem, Eve?"

"Lord, I know you created me and provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedic snake, but I am just not happy."

"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.

"I am lonely, and I am sick to death of apples."

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

"What is a man, Lord?"

"This man will be a flawed creature, with many bad traits. He will lie, cheat, and be vainglorious; all in all, he
will give you a hard time.   But...he will be bigger, faster and he will like to hunt and kill things. I will 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 too smart, so he will also need your advice to think properly."

"Sounds great" says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.   "What is the catch, Lord?"

"Well,...you can have him on one condition."

"What is that, Lord?"

"As I said, he will be proud, arrogant and self-admiring........So you will have to let him believe that I made him
first...........Just remember, it is our little secret........you know, woman to woman."
