Three Nuns, who had led very holy devout lives together, passed away one after the other. And joyfully, as the Good Lord would have it, they arrived at the gates to Heaven together.
Arm-in-arm they began to walk through the Pearly Gates, when Saint Peter stepped forward and stopped them. "Sisters, I am sorry to stop you, but with the recent crises and deaths on earth, Heaven has become a bit full; and we have been forced to revert to a final one question quiz for admission into Heaven.
The Sisters were beside themselves, but Saint Peter consoled them, "Please do not worry. They are religious oriented questions; and having led the holy, devoted lives that you each have led, I am sure you will have little problem correctly answering."
So the first Sister stepped up, and Saint Peter asked her, "Tell me Sister, what was the name of the first man?"
She thought for only a moment and answered, "Why that's an easy one. His name was Adam." And the gates opened, the trumpets blew, the angels sung, and she walked into Heaven.
The second Sister stepped forward and Saint Peter asked her, "Tell me, what was the name of the first woman?"
She thought for a moment and answered, "Why that's an easy one! Her name was Eve!" And the gates opened, the trumpets blew, the angels sung, and she walked into Heaven.
The third Sister stepped forward, knowing how easy the first two questions had been, when St. Peter asked her, "Tell me Sister, what were the first words Eve said to Adam?"
She thought for a long, silent moment. She didn't remember a reference to Eve's first words to Adam in any of the teachings she had received. She thought for a moment longer. Nothing she could remember ever mentioned Eve's first words to Adam. The question seemed so unfair.
The first question had been so easy. The second question had been just as easy. Out of frustration, she said, "Wow, that's a hard one!"
And thus, the gates opened, the trumpets blew and the angels sung. And she was allowed to walk into Heaven.
