Soul Food

Mildred the Church gossip and self appointed monitor of the Church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake however, when she accused Frank, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup truck parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon.

She emphatically told Frank (and several others) that everyone seeing it there "would know what he was doing!"

Frank a man of few words, stared at her for a moment then turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend or deny. He simply said nothing.

Later that evening, Frank quietly parked his pickup truck in front of Mildred's house...walked home...and left it there all night. ~You gotta love Frank!~

I've seen that before but love it more every time I read it. Teaches her a lesson real to love Frank...
