Turn Out the Lights

Bedtime. He was stretched out on his back, all tucked in ready to sleep and had just finished rambling some sort of nonsense about Adam, the origins of time, and naming flies. She was messing with her CPAP machine.

He said, “Time to sleep now.”

She said, “Wait, since you brought it up, there is something I have always wondered about.”

He said, “Hmmm?”

She said, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?”

He said, “Turn out the lights and go to sleep, dear.”

She said, “But this is intriguing! Don’t you want to know?”

He rolled onto his right shoulder and presented her with his back. Then he punched his pillow a couple of times and tugged it into place. As he settled down he said, “As a matter of fact, I do want to ‘No’!”

Ba Da Boom!

After several stunned seconds of silence she said, “Oh! That was very good.” She clicked the lights off and slipped into bed.

He said, “It was wasn’t it?” And then they started giggling.

  1. Hi Quilly, This is good! But you do know but have forgotten. In Genesis it says that God created the fowls of the earth (Genesis 1:20-22; 6:7 ). It didn’t say a thing about Him creating any eggs. 🙂

    20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

    21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

    22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
