Night Shift at the Flying J

We have to take into account all the changes and developments. Rebekah had, as I suppose, a nose ring. But notice how she met Isaac for the first time. “For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself” (Gen. 24:65). We know enough about the culture of that time to know that the connotations of a nose ring were completely different than what they are now. Then it meant that you were a mysterious queen from the east, veiled and alluring. Today it means you are quite possibly working the night shift at the 7-11 off the interstate, selling porn to truckers. I am overstating this somewhat, for the sake of making a point. Before you post a comment indignantly, I grant that this is a generalization, and is not universally true. I mean, you could be working the Flying J.
