The Bottle of Wine September 13, 2010

While driving home from a business trip in Northern Arizona, Sally saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.

She stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.

With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car.

Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman.

The old woman sat silently, looking intently at everything, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.

“What’s in the bag?”

Sally looked down at the brown bag, “It’s a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.”

The Navajo woman remained silent for another moment.

Then, speaking with quiet wisdom, she nodded and said, “Good trade.”‘

Aah . . . that’s better!
