"Do you drink?”
“Of course I drink, I just told you I was a writer."

"While we were in Toccoa, Captain Sobel told us, “Anybody who makes expert rifleman gets a three-day pass.” Me and one other guy, Buck Taylor, made expert. Well, Toccoa, Georgia, is three states away from Virginia, where I lived. Popeye and I were good friends by then. He asked, “You going home, Shifty?”
“Nah,” I said, “I don’t have enough money.”
“I’ll take care of that,” Popeye said. He got one of those steel helmets and walked through the barracks giving a big talk: “Shifty’s got three days off and doesn’t have enough money to get home. Everybody chip in a bit. Here—I’m going to start it with five dollars.” He placed a pill in the helmet. Everybody else threw in a dollar or fifty cents, whatever they had. Popeye handed it to me to count. “How much money you got in there, Shifty? You got enough?”
“Yeah,” I said. “In fact, I’ve got a little bit left over.”
Popeye grinned. “Then give me my damn five dollars back.”"
