Nashville gets steamy in the summer. If you trip and fall, the hot asphalt could scar you permanently. Birds need pot holders to pull worms from the ground.
On one such day I ventured to the downtown area to explore. I parked the car, called my wife, and
approached a parking lot attendant to get advice on what to see. While we were talking, a man and wife
approached the car beside us. The man helped
his wife in the car, but then he stood to listen to my conversation with the
What I saw next was the passenger car door opening. The woman stuck out her hand, palm up, with
an element of frustration. The body
language was clear. “I want the keys so
I can turn on the air conditioner, you jerk!”
That’s what I saw. Remember that my
wife was still listening on the phone. All
she heard was, “Sir, your wife is hot!”
My injuries have healed, but I will forever remember the truth that body
language communicates more than words!
