The Real Story of the Garden of Eden

Interesting conversation overheard in the Garden of Eden:

"Lord, I have a problem."

"What's the problem, Eve?"

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

"And why is that, Eve?"

"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples."

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

"A man? What is that, Lord?"

"A flawed creature, with many bad traits. He'll lie, cheat and be vain. He'll be bigger, faster and will like to hunt and kill things; all in all, he'll give you a hard time. But 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 need your advice to think properly."

"Sounds great, but... what's the catch, Lord?"

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

"Oh. What would that be?"

"As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant and self-admiring - so 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."
