IT WAS AROUND MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF...

I was taking a stroll the other day, seeing as I have to move my new knee and all, when out of nowhere, a tiny little girl emerged from the bushes. You can see how tiny she is compared to the flower pot in the background. She offered me an apple at, what I considered, too high a price. She persisted, and after much back and forth, we could not reach an acceptable price:She simply wanted more than I was willing to pay. I bid her ado and began walking away. I stopped and turned back apologizing for not getting her name. "Eve," she replied. Do you have any idea how fast you can run with a new knee?

  1. It's a good think you didn't tell her you arrived for your walk in the Yugo. She would have run after you, wanting a ride in such an exotic automobile...

  4. Now I see what happens when you eat too many apples. Your skin turns green. I always told my mom that there were dangers involved with eating fruits.

  6. Hmm... this statue is a little creepy. Especially as a decoration in someone's front yard.

  13. I always thought Eve only wore a little fig leaf. I think this little femme was fibbing.

  17. I'd take it. The Garden of Eden was over-rated.

  18. Funny! But you changed the story. There's nothing about an apple in that ancient myth. :-)

  19. There's always something unexpected in your corner of Ft. Lauderdale.

  20. This reminds «Louis» that there is speculation that computers might actually date all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Eve had her little Apple and Adam had a big Wang...
