I probably look like I need it

This happened a few days ago.

I was walking from my work to pick up our car and drive home. As I walked, I passed a homeless man. Older guy, actually pretty nice. Salem has more than it's share of scary homeless people since it's the location of the State's mental hospital.

Anyway, as I walked past, the man asked if I had any extra money. I said no; truthfully, I might add. He considered this for a moment before looking at me and saying, "I have some money, do you need a cup of coffee?"
