The Stuff That Break-ups Are Made Of

(This was a what-if exercise one of my writing teachers had me do. I know Adam and Eve never broke up!!)

ADAM AND EVE ARE IN THE GARDEN. EVE IS PACKING.

While Eve is going through things and packing, Adam is looking out the window with expectant disdain. Suddenly Eve finds the APPLE with two bites taken from it.EVE:
Oh, Adam, look! Its THE Apple.

ADAM:
You can keep it. I never wanted T
HAT THING anyway. Besides, its become oxidized and brown from being stored for so long.

Eve:
But Adam, its the sum total of our relationship. Its what WE were all about.

ADAM:
WE? I never said I wanted it. You practically forced the stupid thing down my throat.

Eve:
Oh, Adam, how could you?

Adam:
Well, WE were told to stay away from it, but you never were one to listen to ME now, were you?

Eve:
Who wants eternal life with no sense of fashion? I mean c’mon, Adam. An entire Garden of trees to choose from and you pick FIG LEAVES!?!

ADAM:
Hey, they would not have decayed if it wouldn’t have been for you.

Eve:
There you go again, Adam! Blaming ME for everything. Honestly!

Adam:
Well, I wanted eternal life. But NOOOO! You just had to have knowledge.

Eve:
You never did appreciate me for my mind!

Rumbling of a motorcycle offstage. Adam runs to the window.

Adam:
Well, well, well. If it isnt your new boyfriend. That Snake!

Eve:
At least he appreciates me for my mind.

Adam:
Ok. But while were on the subject of what’s what and whose is whose – I WANT MY RIB BACK!
