In The Beginning There Was...Twitter?

     Today is a special day at Menopausal Mother's site. I'm introducing you to one of my favorite bloggers, Sarah over at http://sadderbutwiser.wordpress.com. Her blog caught my attention several months ago when she left hilarious comments on my Caveman Twitter post. I just HAD to check out this talented lady and I've been stalking her blog ever since. I knew the moment I read her bio that I had  met a kindred spirit and someone I could call a true friend in the blogosphere. In the short time that I have known Sarah, I realize our brains are wired the same---pretty soon we won't need to email one another---we'll just communicate telepathically.
     Sarah is still fairly new to the blogging world (she started many, many moons ago back in June 2012), but she already has a large audience and quite a few blogging awards under her belt. Her bio reads:   "The Sadder But Wiser Girl is the mother of two children and is married to an evil genius. Suffering from A.D.D., Anxiety, and a phobia of washing dishes by hand, she blogs to save the world from boringness. Though she is college educated, she would gladly trade her degree in for something useful, like a grilled cheese sandwich. She also goes by the name of Sarah Almond, writer, blogger, and dreamer looking to find her niche somewhere in the great big world."
     I think Sarah has already found her niche, and now we are the fortunate ones on the receiving end of  her humor.

                                          *     *     *     *     *     *     *     *     *

A couple of months ago, Menopausal Mother and her darling husband debated about what might happen if Cavemen had Twitter.  This intrigued me.  I started thinking about what if they had Twitter during other notable times in our history.  I’m still learning Twitter, so I’m no expert, but I think that if Twitter was around long ago, things may have been quite interesting. 
So what if they had Twitter in Biblical Times?  The following are tweets that I think really could have happened, complete with horrible reenactments by Barbies.  
For example, what if God tweeted about creating the world?
God@LordOfCreation
BOOM!  I made some great stuff this week!  Check out my pics on Pinterest.


Boo-yah!  World creation complete!  (Grandpa Snake in a Barbie bathrobe makes a fabulous God, or maybe Hugh Hefner?


Now of course no one would tweet back…yet.  What about the Garden of Eden?
Serpent@TheGarden
@Eve Want to grab a snack later?  Come on, no one will know…
Eve@FirstGal
Just got my fig leaves.  #fashion
Adam@FirstDude
I hate shopping, especially for fig leaves.  Thinking of having the Earth’s first beer.


Adam and Eve hanging out in the garden.  Nice apples.

Of course as time went on God would get more popular:
God@LordOfCreation
I’m so excited, I have more than 1000 followers!  #sweet


God would communicate via Twitter.
God@LordOfCreation
@Moses  Do you have a couple of stone tablets and a chisel? I have something I need you to write down for me.
God@LordOfCreation
@Noah  I need a favor, and I really hope you like animals. #EpicFlood


Noah and the only animals I could find.  I don’t think there were dragons on the ark.
(Yes I’m well aware that God and Noah look the same.  I only have so many guy Barbies!)

God@LordOfCreation
@Moses  Hey me again.  Another thought-this whole Egypt thing isn’t working.  We need a new thing. I’m thinking a plague of boxelder bugs.  Thoughts?
Moses@BurningBush
@God  LOL!  That would be annoying but not effective.  What about a plague of earwigs?
God@LordOfCreation
@Moses Nah… I need something more flashy.  Cockroaches?  I’m not really using them for anything.
Moses@BurningBush
@God   Cockroaches are creepy and they do spread disease, but here’s a thought.  Locusts? People hate locusts!
God@LordOf Creation
@Moses Perfect!  Make it so!

Pretty soon everyone would be tweeting!
Moses@BurningBush
Woo-hoo! Just parted the Red Sea! I rock! #Canaan
Jonah@WhaleTales
Awfully dark in here.  Something’s fishy.
Noah@FloatMyBoat
Last call for anyone who wants to take the ark for a spin. #EpicFlood

Joseph@JesusDad
No room at the inn! A manger? WTF? #DamnCensus


Who knew that Hello Kitty and My Little Ponies were present for the Divine Moment?  Um Joseph, you might want to adjust your robe.

Jesus@OhMyDad
Just rose from the dead. Take THAT nonbelievers!
I hope you enjoyed my little venture into the imaginary world of biblical times with Twitter.  Want more?  I’ve got a whole brain full of stuff!  If you want more insight into the scary place that is my mind, come on over to http://sadderbutwiser.wordpress.com and check out my blog!

    2. I am getting a skin graft on my leg on Jan 31st, I was burned in a fire as a baby and I had skin grafts until I was twelve. I injured one of them 11 years ago and it has never healed, I am finally getting my operation. Lots of time to read, sleep and write blogs so that's good, just no walking for 6 weeks which I will find hard.

      Anyhow, I only came back to tell you that you gave me great idea with this post. I want to get 6-8 posts done up while I am in the hospital, so I am going to showcase a few of my blog friends. I am choosing you as one of my posts.. thanks for the idea:)
