I was just reading Sister Mary Lisa's latest postand it brought to mind this latest email from my friend Debbi. It was pretty cute and I wanted to share. Plus I haven't had anything interesting happen to me lately to really talk about.
God asks, "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."
God replies, "And why is that, Eve?"
"Lord, I am 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?"
"Man is 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, 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, Lord?"
"Well" says God, "you can have him on one condition."
"And what's that, Lord?"
"As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant and self absorbed, so you'll have to let him believe that I made him first. And it will have to be our little secret. . . . . . .
