NORWOOD AND HIS TASTE FOR COFFEE

AN ACQUAINTANCE OF MY FATHER'S NAMED NORWOOD LIVED ABOUT
TEN OR TWELVE MILES FROM PULASKI. IT WAS NOT AN UNCOMMON
SIGHT TO SEE HIM WALKING TO AND FROM PULASKI. WHEN ASKED
ABOUT THE TRIP, HE ALWAYS REPLIED, "I STEPPED OVER TO
TOWN TO GET SOME COFFEE FOR BREAKFAST."
ONCE WHEN EATING AT A NEIGHBOR'S HOME, HE PASSED HIS
CUP BACK SEVERAL TIMES FOR MORE COFFEE. THE LADY OF THE
HOUSE SAID TO HIM, "MR. NORWOOD, YOU ARE VERY FOND OF
COFFEE, AREN'T YOU?" "YES MAM, IF I WASN'T I WOULDN'T
BE DRINKING SO MUCH WATER TO GET A LITTLE COFFEE."
