A business man from Texas who was a visitor in New York stood watching a building being constructed. After an hour or so, he noticed a rough-dressed man also standing by, also watching, and smoking one cigar after another. Finally he said, How many cigars do you smoke a day? About ten, the man answered. What do they cost you? Twenty-five cents a piece. My, that s two dollars and half a day! How long have you been smoking? Thirty years. Two-fifty a day for thirty years is a lot of money. Yes, it is. Do you see that office building on the corner? Yes. If you had never smoked in your life you might own that fine building. The man took the cigar out of his mouth, looked squarely at his questioner and said, Do you smoke? No. Well, I do.
