and promptly orders three beers. The bartender raises his eyebrows, but serves
the man three beers, which he drinks quietly at a table, alone.

This happens yet again. The next evening the man again orders and drinks three
beers at a time, several times. Soon the entire town is whispering about the
Man Who Orders Three Beers.

town. "I don't mean to pry, but folks around here are wondering why you always
order three beers?"

went to America , and the other to Australia .. We promised each other that
we would always order an extra two beers whenever we drank as a way of keeping
up the family bond."

> > The bartender and the whole town were pleased with this answer, and soon
the Man Who Orders Three Beers became a local celebrity and source of pride to
the hamlet, even to the extent that out-of-towners would come to watch him

pours them with a heavy heart. This continues for the rest of the evening. He
orders only two beers. The word flies around town. Prayers are offered for the
soul of one of the brothers.

> > The next day, the bartender says to the man, "Folks around here, me first
of all, want to offer condolences to you for the death of your brother. You
know-the two beers and all."

that my two brothers are alive and well. It's just that I, meself, have decided
to give up drinking for Lent."
