A asks, APPLE?

Today, I start the A-Z Challenge - April 2013. One 30-day month, minus Sundays. 26 Alphabets. A word for each, your way. Talk about anything or leave it to the imagination. April 2013 is set to go back to the basics. Also, a special thank you to  Arlee Bird for bringing this to us. I'm so looking forward to this month of April.

"A says Aa, Aa for Apple". All of us have pretty much been there. Most of us would also have heard of the 'three apples' that impacted history as repeated social media forwards. The three men in question, Adam, Newton and Steve Jobs. The third kind, I don't own, yet. The second gentleman is responsible for everything that is going down south, a battle I will fight him later. That brings us to the first man, literally.
 
So, God created the garden of Eden and he put Adam there in his happy place. God was smart. Apparently, Adam was not. Having surveyed the area, soon he was lonely and pouting like a brat. Now, here's the thing. He could have asked for anything and he would have been granted that. It was God, remember? A golf buddy, a chilled beer, the TV remote, any of these darn things, day in and day out. But no sire! Adam asks for a woman! God being a softie, granted him what he wanted. He knew it was bad for him, still. Parents are like that. They give their kids gadgets and then grumble about the ill effects of technology that eat into family time.  
 
Anyway, coming back to the story. Eve came along and all was great. It was just the beginning. But now that Adam had her, he began ignoring her. The thrill for him was in the kill. Once you have the trophy on the mantelpiece, why bother? I mean, if he didn't really want to have a conversation, why ask for a woman? And seriously, what were the recreational options? Let me remind you, there were no malls, no phones and no other women either. All poor Eve wanted to do was gossip. So, Eve found solace in the company of the serpent. That's when Adam got jealous. He did not like the shift in the spotlight. He said, 'what she can do, I can do better'. And all hell broke loose, again, literally! Every decision that Adam could not make was blamed on poor Eve. And so it has been since generations. Yeah right, we really wanted those labour pains Mister!
 
Why do men fail to see that it was indeed Adam who ruined it for them? If he hadn't asked for EVE, women would never have been a part of the plan. All of you could have gone fishing 365 days in a year. No putting down the toilet seat and no laundry instructions........

Well, c'est la vie. But now that I've set the record straight, make note and remember.
 
If you have a problem with your madam, blame it on ADAM.
Because he ate the apple, you walked a woman to the CHAPEL



    Tally-Ho.......,

Blogwati Gee said...

Egggjaktly my point. Thank you for endorsing it further :D

JANU said...

This was my idea for "A" post too...but, you have written a master piece.

Blogwati Gee said...

Can't wait to read your version Janu. I'm sure it will be a potboiler.

Rickie said...

To that, Adam might say - 'Arrey toh fir woh aayi hi kyun? She shouldn't have agreed to come down to Earth when God asked her to!' - and put the blame squarely at the doorstep of her boudoir!

As you have correctly postulated, bad call! :D

Blogwati Gee said...

Rickie, he offered her his ribs! Ab bechari who kya kare? Non-vegetarian jo thi! :P

Cynthia Rodrigues Manchekar said...

What a funny perspective! Blame it on Adam is certainly a nice way to begin April.

Blogwati Gee said...

Cynthia, feels good doesn't it? :D

sulekkha said...

Shilpa Garg said...

Awesome! Loved reading this!! Agree completely, it is Adam who has to be blamed! :D

Shail Mohan said...

I like how you compared Adam's action to how parents give gadgets to kids and then complain about the effects of technology :)
Hilarious take.

Blogwati Gee said...

Tell me about it Corinne. I any which way don't fancy slimy stuff.

Thank you for pulling me into this, ever so gently :)

Blogwati Gee said...

See, I knew I was right all along. Thanks for affirming, Shilpa.

Blogwati Gee said...

Shail, more often than not, parents screw up the kids!

Afshan said...

The third kind of apple will grip u so hard that other two apples at times r forgotten :-/ Anyway Loved it . Specially last two lines . Funny

Preetilata【ツ】 said...

Oooppss! i don't to what to comment on a post that's hilarious and makes complete sense. Seriously, tell me, how did you think about it? i want to know the thought process that went behind this superb post. :D

Priya Sreeram said...

gee- what a funny take on snakes,apples n ribs :D Adam blaming is a good way to start April :)

Suresh Chandrasekaran said...

Hahaha! Now that is one take that Adam will be happy not to have read :) To think he even sacrificed a rib to get Eve only to ignore her later :)

Elisabeth Kauffman said...

Hilarious! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck on the A to Z Challenge!

Blogwati Gee said...

I tried using it Afshan, was ok. I like my windows though...:P

I thought this was funny too...

Blogwati Gee said...

Preetilata, this has been my retort to every man who said that women were the bane of his existence.

Blogwati Gee said...

Hai na? Me thought so too! Glad to find so many of my tribe :)

Blogwati Gee said...

I'm telling you Suresh, if only he had been a tad bit more brainier than brawnier :P

Blogwati Gee said...

Thanks. Good luck to you too!

Shail Mohan said...

"nods in agreement*

Naina Madan said...

Hahahaaa!! Such a wonderful manifestation of A!:-)

I have problems with Adam (generally hate men), Newton (hate Physics). Third one, I am yet to own.

Roshni AaMom said...

This is such an ROTFL post!! You did it yet again!!

Dee said...

Haha, nice one! I will be sure to follow your B-Z posts. I wonder if B is for Banana?

Your fellow A-Z challenger,
Deecoded

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Too good! I always love reading such witty male-bashing posts! And what a twist! I never thought the "A for Apple" was going to lead to "Mars Vs. Venus"!

Looks like this A-Z Challenge is going to be fun! Too bad my April blogging schedule was already so full that I couldn't join in this time! :(

Nandana said...

Hahaha...hilarious one.

Adam was such a silly nincompoop!

Anuradha Khanna Pentapalli said...

Loved reading the post! Esp the ending! Adam ki vaat laga di Madam :)

Jocelyn Rish said...

Blogwati Gee said...

Thanks Naina. Glad we share our thoughts on the APPLE :)

Blogwati Gee said...

And you made me sound like Britney Spears!!!! *Sobs*

Blogwati Gee said...

Thanks Dee. Banana would be too obvious, no? Nah...the B post is up and about. Being sweet for a change.

Blogwati Gee said...

Well, this has been my retort to all men who complain about women.....forever. Glad you dropped by!

Blogwati Gee said...

You are telling me.....and it is all because of him, now, isn't it?

Blogwati Gee said...

Ab aadat se majboor, kya kare abla nari. Pad gayi Adam par bhari :P

Blogwati Gee said...

You too Cynthia.

Blogwati Gee said...
