Yesterday morning, as part of the meeting, we had a Question Time. Some of the young teens group had asked some questions and nominated people they wanted to be on the panel to answer them. The panel was introduced as those they saw as being the wise ones of Linden. And I was on the panel!!!!
As I said, when I answered my first question, I am convinced I was chosen simply for comic value.
Afterwards one of the young men from church said to me, 'I can't believe they chose you as a wise one!' He did have a huge grin on his face so I think he was joking. Partly. But then I said the same thing to someone else - I mean I said, 'I don't believe they chose me as a wise one,' - and that someone else said, 'They probably didn't know anyone else's name.'
Eight hours later I thought, 'Hang on, that was a bit cheeky!' It's all very well me saying I'm stupid but I don't expect others to agree with me!
That is the logic of woman. This woman anyway.
To prove my wisdom I'll tell you the first question and my abbreviated answer.
'Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons?'
'No, I don't think they did. They were not of woman born so wouldn't have done. However, if you mean, did the first people have belly buttons, and you're looking at it from an evolutionary viewpoint, then, yes, they would have had belly buttons as they were mammals. Although,' I added, 'I couldn't find a belly button on my dog yesterday. But then I'm not convinced he's entirely normal. So my answer to the question, did Adam and Eve have belly buttons, is no ... or yes.'
Now you understand why they chose me for the panel, don't you?
