Good trade

For  all of us who are married, were married, wish
you  were married, or wish you weren’t married, this
is  something to smile about the next time you see  a
bottle of wine:

Sally was driving home from  one of her business
trips in Northern Arizona when  she saw an elderly
Navajo woman walking on the side  of the road.

As the trip was a long and quiet  one, 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 just  sat silently, looking intently at
everything she saw,  studying every little detail,
until she noticed a  brown bag on the seat next to
Sally.

’What in  bag?’ asked the old woman.

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

The Navajo woman was silent  for another moment or
two. Then speaking with the  quiet wisdom of an elder,
she said:

’Good  trade…..’
