A Tie Story

By Brenda B. Covert
1     Colin and Johanna stood at the store's tie display. There were ties of every color and pattern imaginable. Colin favored the tie that looked like a rainbow trout hanging around a man's neck. Johanna liked one that featured bottles of hot sauce on a black background.
 
2     "I don't think that Uncle Bennett would really wear those," their mother, Mrs. Baldwin, said. "I'm sure that when he appears in court, he tries to look serious."
 
3     Johanna shook her head. "As serious as this?" she asked, pulling a plain black tie off the rack. She held it away from her as if it gave off a bad odor.
 
4     "He should show the judge and jury that he has a good sense of humor," Colin replied. "And here's just the tie he needs to prove it!" He showed his mother a tie covered with pigs wearing wings and halos.
 
5     "I was thinking of something like this," Mrs. Baldwin said, reaching for a navy blue tie with thin red stripes. "It's classic."
 
6     "It's boring!" Colin asserted.
 
7     Johanna didn't like her mother's choice either. "Why do men even wear ties? They don't do anything."
 
8     "Don't ask me. My dad was a farmer," Mrs. Baldwin said with a shrug. "He lived in overalls. He never wore ties."
