Married? Yes. Wife? No. What?!

I wear a wedding ring, but sometimes my life as a consultant gets tricky when you work with clients for a few days before you move on.

I'm in a small town in the Texas panhandle and the following conversation is between me and a 65 year-old grandmotherly office worker who was born and raised in the small Texas panhandle town.

Nice Lady: "Do you have any children?"
Me: "No, but I have two dogs."
Nice Lady: "Are you a married man?"
Me: "Yes."
Nice Lady: "What does your wife do?"
Me: "I don't have a wife."

The Nice Lady had a confused look on her face, and I offered no additional explanation, before she left my office.
