Beginning of "Men"-kind


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've created me and have 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?" came the reply from above.

"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'll lie, cheat, and be vainglorious;
all in all, he'll give you a hard time.
But, he'll be bigger, faster, and will like to hunt and kill things.
He will look silly aroused, but since you've being complaining,
I'll create him in such in a way that he will satisfy your ah, "physical needs".
He'll be witless and 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 ironically raised
eyebrow. "What's the catch, Lord?"

"Yeah, well.... You can have him on one condition."

"What's that, Lord?"

"As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant, and self-admiring...
So you'll have to let him believe that I made him first...
So, just remember... it's our secret...Woman-to-woman!"
