Good Trade

  1. 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. After a bit of small
    talk, the Navajo woman noticed a brown bag on the
    seat next to Sally. "What's in the bag?" asked
    the 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 a moment then
    speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder
    said, "Good trade."
