2nd Place Creation

There are a few things that most people don’t know about gods.The first, is that they are more like us then we would like to believe. The second, is that they are all full of pride and fierce competition, and love to pit themselves against one another.

Earth was created as a science project. And it only got second place.

It had only taken our god seven days start to finish, but he was cocky and too sure of himself.

The god who won created an elaborately structured series of nebulae.

After losing, our god scooped up the earth, tore down his poster-board and carried it and his second place medal home. He took the earth in his hands and walked around to the back, opened the trash can, and dropped it in. His father was disappointed, and told him he should take more responsibility for what he created. Our god just shrugged his shoulders and went to his room for a long sleep.

And that’s what happened.
