My 3rd grade teacher was Mrs. Southern. She is still living, as of this writing, and she goes to my church. She believed in Show and Tell. One day, she was teaching us about buying stuff and money. She brought small boxes of cereal to show a grocery store. I, along with some other boys, didn't care about buying anything. We ate the cereal. We got in trouble. Another time, she brought coffee beans to school to show where coffee came from. I ate the beans and got very sick. To this day, I don't drink coffee. I blame all of that on Mrs. Southern.
