A Salesman

A salesman is driving toward home in Northern
Arizona when he sees a Navajo man hitchhiking.
Because the trip had been long and quiet,
he stops the car and the Navajo man
climbs in.

During their small talk, the Navajo man glances
surreptitiously at a brown bag on the front seat
between them.

"If you're wondering what's in the bag," offers
the salesman,"it's a bottle of wine. I got it
for my wife."

The Navajo man is silent for awhile, nods several
times and says, "Good trade."
