There is a story Bill Deacon likes to tell about me.  Some 15 years ago, on a canoe trip – it was time for a campfire – I was pretty particular – controlling is his word – I was pretty ‘particular’ about just how to set up a good campfire.  So I said something like – ‘How about I be in charge of the fire?’  So for the rest of the trip, he and the other guy with us did their best to subtly disrupt my control of the fire.  Knock a log over, hide the kindling…   If I was Prometheus trying to control the fire, they were Zeus reminding me of the limits of pridefulness. read more…

Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs. Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and said, “Johnny, what is the matter?” Little Johnny responded, “I have a pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.”
