By George!

Mildred, the church gossip and self-appointed monitor of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose in to other people’s business.
Mildred 1
Several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.
Mildred 2Mildred 3
One day she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the small town’s only bar one afternoon.
Mildred 4
She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing.
Mildred 5
George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away.
Mildred 6
He didn’t explain, defend, nor deny.

He said nothing.

Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred’s house
Mildred 7
… walked home

….and left it there all night.
