Giving Up Wine

I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly
dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of
dollars for dinner.

I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, 'If I give you
this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?'
'No, I had to stop drinking years ago', the homeless woman told me..
"'Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?' I asked.
'No, I don't waste time shopping,' the homeless woman said. 'I need
to spend all my time trying to stay alive..'
'Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?' I asked.
'Are you NUTS!' replied the homeless woman. I haven't had my hair
done in 20 years!'

'Well, I said, 'I'm not going to give you the money.. Instead, I'm
going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.'
The homeless Woman was shocked. 'Won't your husband be furious with
you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty
disgusting..'

I said, 'That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman
looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and
wine.'

You had me scared, too. But your little tale reminds me of another that was emailed to me recently:


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.'

You scared me for a second! I thought you might have crossed the line into some sort of fitness/diet nonsense, and then I'd have to slap you around. Now I'm relieved.

No worries, I don't "diet" and never plan to. I love good food! I also love good wine. I do try to exercise regularly. I run and started yoga, but that is mostly to attempt to offset my love of food and wine! =)
