I was walking down the street in Sterling, when I was approached by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner. I took out my wallet, extracted two dollars and asked, "If I gave you this money, will you buy liquor with it instead?" No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied. Will you use it to gamble instead of buying food?" I asked. No, I don't gamble" the homeless man said. "I need everything I can get just to stay alive." Will you spend the money on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?" I asked. Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!" Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you the two dollars. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife." The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty bad." I replied, "Hey, man, that's okay! I just want her to see what a man looks like who's given up liquor, gambling, and golf."
