In the car on the way to church this morning….

The Manager:  Hey Mom!!  My Bible has pictures in it of those people.  (Shows me cartoon drawing of Adam and Eve.)

Me: Yes honey, do you know their names?

The Mercenary: Adam and Eve!

Me: Yes, but I was asking the little boys.

The Mercenary, (trying to make up for his mistake): Do you know what Adam and Eve ate?

Captain Earthquake: The bad apple.

The Mercenary: And what happened to Adam and Eve when they ate the bad apple?

Captain Earthquake: They got naked.

    I usually have a similar reaction to bad apples. One bite, and I’m shedding my clothes like a tree in autumn.
