Mama Squirrel prefers the imagery of Jean Richards' picture book God's Gift (a creation story):
God continued making creatures, some large, some small, some round, some tall. Finally He asked Man, "Which of these creatures wil be your partner?"
"They're all splendid creatures," said Man sadly, "but not one of them is right for me. I want someone who is almost like me but just different enough."
Happy anniversary, Mr. Fixit.
