That which Ad¡¦am needed most, was that which God was happy to supply. The rib has always caused a lot of speculation. One wag offered this conversation between God and Ad¡¦am,

Lord, I¡¦m lonely. I need to have some company here.

OK, Ad¡¦am. I¡¦m going to give you the perfect woman.

„« She will be intelligent, beautiful and gracious.

„« She will cook your meals, clean the Garden,

„« She will raise the kids flawlessly and never nag or speak an ugly word to you.

Wow! Sounds good.... But, what¡¦s it gonna cost me?

An arm and a leg, boy!

Well, replied the man, That¡¦s really steep -- what can I get for a rib?

Martha G. Verlander, as quoted in The Reader¡¦s Digest, February 1991, 82
