His wife, as useless as a May pole in Winter: straight and awkward and out of season but her husband wasn’t the type to notice.  He took pride in himself though; in his decisions, in his conversation and he was pro-active.  That’s why people liked him and took an interest and invited him to share a bottle of wine. 
That’s what he told his wife and his wife stood very still and she didn’t disagree.  She didn’t agree either but he wasn’t the type of husband to notice that.  When the conversation occasionally short circuited he continued, best foot forward and appreciated that not everybody was a good speaker like he was. 
To compliment him his wife was a good listener. 
She was very patient.  Very silent.  Very still.
