Apparently a Picture Paints Exactly 5 Words

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 parking attendant.

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!
