Dialog in the Garden of Eden

Eve: I’m bored.
Adam: Let’s do something.
Eve: There’s nothing to do.
Adam: We could name some more animals.
Eve: Oh, please.
Adam: We could ask God what to do.
Eve: I don’t think he likes me.
Adam: You don’t know that.
Eve: Do you want to go shopping?
Adam: For what? We already have everything we need.
Eve: Let’s go play with the animals.
Adam: They make poor partners.
Eve: Did you clean the kitty litter box this morning?
Adam: Yes, and I have tilled the garden.
Eve: Have you thought of a good name for me yet?
Adam: We are innocent.
Eve: How boring is that.
Adam: We could pretend.
Eve: Pretend what?
Adam: Pretend that we are not innocent.
Eve: Has God not forbidden petension?
Adam: God is full of flatulence.
Eve: That big bang was sure something.
Adam: We could dress up and go out.
Eve: La-de-da.

      We must be able to find interest to take interest even in the most intrinsically boring of tasks. Otherwise we are forever condemned to snobbish responses.
