"You know how Adam and Eve were English.."
That isn't a joke - it's what one of my S1's at the school said this afternoon! The question followed "How did Chinese people happen?"!!! Some very slightly startled gibbers were swiftly suppressed and I tried to explain that it was a story telling truths, not a fact. Oh yes, if Adam and Eve did exist then the Garden of Eden was in Iraq and Adam looked like Saddam Hussein! (Maybe that didn't help!) Also what was the meaning of life? (42 of course)! Great fun, if slightly surreal! I do enjoy school!
