The Tour

I took a tour with God through the tungsten steel factory. 
I asked if God was amazed at our human ingenuity to take minerals from the ground and transform them into useful instruments. 
God said, “I guess.” 
I asked God about the seeming indifference in vocal tone. 
God said, “It’s just that you seem like you constantly want my approval. It’s exhausting.” 
We walked in silence for a while. We ended up at the factory’s gift shop. When God wasn’t looking, I ordered an engraved steel cup. When it was done I handed the cup to God. 
God read the engraving out loud, “Just a dumb old cup.” God smiled and gave me a hug.
