God and Eve

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

Man? What is that, Lord?"

"A flawed creature, with many bad habits and 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...You can have him on one condition."

And 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. And it will have to be our little secret...you know, woman to woman."
