True Story …Posted: July 15, 2008
So this is not an original … but then, if its true, why does it need to be? Well … heres one which you might want to hear. And one which the girls dont know about (and maybe we should keep it this way … dont wannt antagonize them, do we?).
Well, in a time distant … there was Adam … roaming The Garden! He was having a really good time. He could go out for a drink whenever he wanted to. He could come back home when he pleased, sleep late, in general, do whatever he pleased. And then, one day, he had an idea … Wouldnt it be nice to have someone to talk to? In this frame of mind, he approached God. And he asked … God, can i have someone to talk with? God, in His wisdom, said … Yes, my son … you shall have a companion. She shall be called Eve, and she shall be the best thing to have happened to you. You wouldnt be able to ask for anything better. And this caught Adam’s attention … Tell me more, he said.
Well … God said … She shall be the perfect companion. First of all, she shall never go shopping. She shall have an extreme allergy to expensive new clothes, to perfumes, and to any kinds of cosmetics. Hence, she shall stay away from all of these. In short, she shall never go shopping. She will always listen to you. And, she will never argue with you. She will, after you have had your say, apologize to you even if (hold your breath, friends!), the mistake was yours. She shall never complain about anything, and will take care of you and your home without any complaints. She will have absolutely no problems with you drinking Beer, and your boy’s evenings out. Hmmm … Interesting … thought Adam. And then he turned to God, and asked … Father, how much is she going to cost me? (for he also knew, in his Smithonian form, that there is no such thing as a free lunch!) … God quickly did some costing calculations, and told him … My son, she is going to cost you an arm and a leg. Adam thought, and then he thought some more. God of course told him that this was a limited period offer, so he had to make up his mind fast. Like, in the next 5 seconds. Inspired by the idea of getting a good deal, Adam decided to bargain (a la Janpath, or Fashion Street!). He asked God … what do i get for a rib? (the rest, of course, is history … the 5 seconds were over!)
