a conversation between God and Adam

Quite some time ago, one of my nieces asked me, "How old are you?"

I said:

As old as Adam, nearly. Had to be.

Soon after He created Adam, God noticed him moping about. So He said, "What's with the woeful face, my friend?"

And Adam said: "Well, you know, Lord, sometimes I feel so down...."

And God said: "I can see that. Though I love you dearly -- like my own son, really -- it's also true , I have a universe to run. It's a big job!"

Thereon Adam interjected: "That's so, but Heaven knows, you're The Guy to do it!"

"Well," continued the Lord, "when I'm off painting the autumn leaves, or maybe making sure the waves have plenty of foam, I can see where you might sometimes feel a little down. Like Me, before I made you."

So they put their heads together, and Ta Da! came up with me!

My niece said, "That's a joke, right?"

I said: "Believe it or not, that's exactly how it happened."
