Whither Thou Goest
In the Bible, Ruth tells her mother-in-law, Naomi, that she will stick with her and go whither Naomi goest. So when Mike, Miss Sugar’s brother, and I wanted to go to the gun show, we invited our wives to goest too. And they did.
Some womenfolk might be reluctant to attend a gun show, but not Sugar, nor Linda. They been there before, and done that. They knew what lesser women might not know, which is that at gun shows there are more than guns. There are knives too. And huntin’ stuff. No surprise there, but here is the surprise — they got jewelry and conceal carry purses.
Sugar found the jewelry booths and got herself some. Although I looked at guns and knives, all I bought was a bumper sticker that says, “Honk if you have never seen a gun shot from a pickup.” I put it on my pickup truck’s rear bumper.
Some might think that reciprocity is in order; that Mike and I should go to, say, a quilt show, if our wives want to do so. Well, pardner, that is where we draw the line.
