(Aztec Mortals) NATA and NENA

Aztec version of Mr and Mrs Noah, but no two by two's and not a particularly happy ending.

At the end of 'ce calli' Tezcatlipoca tipped off the chosen human pair, Nata and Nena, of an impending flood, told them to build a waterproof Cyprus wood casket and gave them specific instructions to eat nothing mire than a single ear of maize each no matter how long the flood lasted.

Unfortunately, Nata and Nina had pretty much hammered their rations within minutes of climbing aboard and as they took a little peak to check out the flood situation they couldn't help but notice the waters were choc-a-bloc with oodles of delicious looking fish.

I would hazard a guess Nena said 'i dare you', Nata went into hunter gatherer mode and moments later a fire was lit, fish was cooked and gobbled up, and they sat patting their over-filled tums. The woman is always the temptress! :-)

Needless to say Tezcatlipoca was peeved. Not only had they eaten more than their allowance but heaven was now full of smoke and the stink of fish. So, the last two naughty humans were turned into dogs and it was back to the drawing board for the next generation.
