A bottle of wine – for a husband


“My opinion of men is that if they don’t work, forget them” (*).

Dear friends,


I enjoyed reading this story  in . I don’t know how the author is…  

Ah! The ‘navajo’ woman  speaks ‘broken English’ – but the little she said, was wise ( in some ‘cases‘)

 A bottle of wine – for a husband  (?)

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  her 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 her ‘guest’ . No way. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying each  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.’
