Sharin'


From John Steinbeck's, The Grapes of Wrath (page 49)--a conversation between Jim Casy and Muley Graves:

“You sharin’ with us, Muley Graves?”

Muley fidgeted in embarrassment. “I ain’t got no choice in the matter.”

He stopped on the ungracious sound of his words.

“That ain’t like I mean it. That ain’t. I mean” – he stumbled – “what I mean, if a fella’s got somepin to eat an’ another fella’s hungry – why, the first fella ain’t got no choice.”
