The Bottle of Wine January 13, 2018

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

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 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!

I wouldn’t trade BFF for a bottle of wine . . . or a vineyard . . . But I found wisdom in her words. 😏

Jill Weatherholt - January 13, 2018

No way would I trade either! 🙂

You always make me laugh! Much appreciated on our grey day here where we have a weather warning of great amounts of rain! I’ll share that when B gets in. 🙂

Gray here too. I think the promised sun is playing hooky!

mybeautfulthings - January 13, 2018

Mr S did love it too! xx

nrhatch - January 13, 2018

Personally I would have held out for a dog or a cat in exchange.

nrhatch - January 13, 2018

It’s all about priorities!

My wife would never trade me for a bottle of wine. But I’m pretty sure she’d give me up for a Keurig.

nrhatch - January 13, 2018

If you want a bit more job security, get her a Keurig for her birthday or, sooner still, Valentine’s Day!

8. anotherday2paradise - January 13, 2018

Very funny indeed, Nancy. I hope it was a good vintage. 😀

nrhatch - January 13, 2018

Yes! A fine wine, indeed.

Here’s to good trades . . . and to husbands that are too good to trade!

roughwighting - January 14, 2018

For sure!! ❤

A very clever observation! I tend to be quite literal myself! 🙂

nrhatch - January 14, 2018

The English language can be so confusing at times ~ even without intending a double entendre.

11. Anne Lene @ MinimalistSometimes - January 14, 2018

Ok, I did NOT expect that one… good one, Nancy… good one! 😉

nrhatch - January 14, 2018

Glad it caught you by surprise . . . in a good way.

12. L. Marie - January 15, 2018

That is hilarious!!!

nrhatch - January 15, 2018

Yay! Glad it tickled your funny bone chakra. 😀

🤣🤣🤣 … I should know better, but you keep surprising me!

nrhatch - January 29, 2018

Haha! I love it when a joke’s punch line catches me by surprise.
