Adam was created, there he was in the Garden of Eden. Of
course it wasn't good for hime to be all by himself, so
the Lord came down to visit.
"Adam," He said, "I have a plan to make
you much, much happier. I'm going to give you a companion,
a helpmate for you, someone who will fulfill your every
need and desire. Someone who will be faithful, loving, and
obedient. Someone who will make you feel wonderful every
day of your life."
Adam was stunned. "That sounds incredible."
"Well, it is," replied the Lord. "But it
doesn't come for free. In fact this is someone so special
that it's going to cost and arm and a leg."
"That's a pretty high price to pay," said Adam.
"What can I get for a rib?"
