And God Made Man

One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve called out to God:

— Lord, I have a problem!

— What's the problem, Eve?

— Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, and that hilarious funny snake, but I'm just not happy.

— Why is that, Eve? came the reply from above.

— Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples.

— Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you.

— What's a 'man', Lord?

— This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly. All in all, he'll give you a hard time. But, he'll be bigger, faster and more muscular than you. He'll also need your advice to think properly. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about, hunting fleet-footed ruminants, and not altogether bad in the sack.

— Sounds great, says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow. What's the catch, Lord?

— Yeah, well.... you can have him on one condition.

— What's that, Lord?

— You'll have to let him believe that I made him first.

Assine a lista EFR

Esta lista veicula diariamente uma história, preferencialmente engraçada (afinal, quem não gosta de uma boa piada?), ou uma citação. As histórias estão em inglês, e as palavras mais incomuns são comentadas. Dessa forma os alunos aprendem, todos os dias, duas ou mais palavras novas. Todos os dias. Em um ano esse pequeno esforço diário pode vir a fazer uma grande diferença.
