The 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."

I luv the "wise words" - and feel sure many a woman - would so agree with her comment....

Alas for any male partner - it is an "ouch" moment....

Great post - Carla.

Carla said...

Philosophy of Life, I'm glad you have a sense of humour ;)

Chani, Ha, ha!

Carla said...

Tracey, Thanks. A laugh is always good.

Carrie, Sounds like you're having a good chuckle.

Carla said...

VE, Are you talking about women and wine? Men and wine? Or relationships in general?

Camplin, It's the pirouette in turns of phrases, isn't it?

Sirdar said...

LOL

dawn said...

That is so funny. I could go for a bottle of wine. I think I will just buy it, and keep Sirdar around. Thanks for the laugh.

Pamela said...

I think it would at least take a case ---- of something very expensive.

Carla said...

Sirdar, Laughter, sweet music to my ears.

Dawn, I think that is probably a wise move on your part. Enjoy the wine.

Carla said...

Pamela, I'm inclined to agree.

Annie, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Laughter is a wonderful thing.

Pink said...

Ha! She's so wrong. Not a good trade at all.

A GREAT trade!

Carla said...

Mark, Glad it made you giggle.

Pandave, It's worth a good guffaw, isn't it? Cheers.

Fede said...

So this is the risk we face...being traded for a glass of wine...

Hope you are OK.
Good night and good luck.

Carla said...

Fede, Only those men who drive women to drink risk such a fate. I certainly can't imagine that you could be lumped in with that crowd. Life is extremely busy at the moment...need to schedule in time to breathe. But aside from that, the universe is undoubtedly unfolding as it should. How are you?
