God’s blood was love. His bones were love. His eyes, his heart, his kidneys were love. 52 He didn’t know what He’d done wrong that caused a thing—the other brother— to be born without love. A thing that came from Him. He asked Sheila what she thought He should do, now that killing was a part of things. ” Just like that. Sheila had always been a very smart girl. So the story goes that God took on the blood, the bones, the eyes, the heart, the kidneys of a man. And He made real friends. And He loved a real family.

Funny thing is, He liked it. He knew He wasn’t supposed to. All those girls crying about their boyfriends. All those track meets. All that soap and toothpaste. He liked it. Couldn’t help it. Then Gabriel came over with a deck of cards and next thing you know, they’ve played poker four weeks straight. Gabriel’s beard nearly 29 as long as God’s and corn chips all over the place. And what God decided was that he liked not cable, not poker, but a break. Every now and then, even God needs a break. 30 GOD FOUND GOD It was the weirdest thing.

He didn’t know it would happen quite that way, 54 but He finally saw how pain caused one of two things: A reverence for life. Or killing. Both grew from the same seed. The one He had planted. So God went back to being God, finally comfortable with being called All-Knowing because now He actually was. And after that, He made sure He ate popcorn and watched a movie every Friday night. Petted the cats. Fed the birds. And played the jukebox at Kenny’s Tavern. God needed to remember what a cool thing 55 it was to be a guy.
