Apple seeds

Joannie was reading a tale when her Granny entered the room.  

Granny, she asked, is it true that we learned about Good and Evil when Adam and Eve ate an apple?

Yes, dear, Granny was very learned in difficult subjects.

 If it is so, went on the child, why it is so difficult to find out between good and bad?  

It is because they spat the seeds, declared the old woman.

The music is a fragment of "What Goes Beneath" por Russ Sergeant.

  1. This is what all children need in life, and that's to have a learned Granny around to answer such difficult questions. This post had me smiling.

    1. Undoubtedly Grandparents are a great invention! :)

      I am elated to know my tale made you smile!

      Thank you, RPD!

  2. What we experience in life is always related to what we believe. Elders seem to convince us to believe more!

    A post which can make me ponder. You're having good hands in writing tales. Keep going! :)

    1. Elders need our beliefs to hold us in restrain, at least during the beginning of our life.

      It is to ponder! Thank you, BB.
