Our Little Secret
One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve calls out to God. "Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's 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'm just not happy."
"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."
"What's a man, Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with many bad traits. He will be inclined to lie, cheat, and he vainglorious; all in all, he'll give you a hard time. But, he'll be bigger, faster, and can do heavy lifting and build things. He will look silly when he's aroused, but since you've been complaining, I'll create him in such a way that he will satisfy your physical needs. He will revel in childish things, like fighting and kicking a ball about. He won't be too smart, so he'll also need your advice to think properly."
"Sounds great." says Eve, with an raised eyebrow. "What's the catch, Lord?"
"Well, you can have him in one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"As I said before, he'll be proud, arrogant and self-admiring... So you'll have to let him think I made him first.
Just remember, it's our little secret... you know, woman to woman."
