Trifecta: Week Seventy Seven ~ Gravity

He liked to be addressed as Newton because there were so many Isaacs.  Hide and seek and catch-catch did not interest him; and in any case children then were supposed to study and work and not waste their time in frivolous pass times.  However, he wasted  much time wondering about the sun, the moon and other celestial toys.

One day he fell asleep under an apple tree. Satan saw Newton asleep and decided to teach him a lesson for his interest in locations that he aspired to control.  He climbed up the tree and with deliberate aim dropped three red apples on Newton’s head.

Since that day humans have been obsessed with conquering gravity. Finally, a partial victory was registered in second half of 20th century with advent of air travel and the mankind was divided into those who belonged to the mile high club and those who do not.

  1. I’m still trying to decide if the devil won or not, ha! Do airplanes and flying in the heavens make a mockery of Him or bring people closer to Him? Great little piece.

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. I like the Satan reference. I think this sort of thing happens often to that poor Dark Angel. He’s like a basketball player who keeps accidentally flinging shots into the wrong hoop. He drops an apple, and it immortalizes Newton. Well done!

I love arguments
