Did You Ever Drink Postum

My mother must have thought Postum was a way to make us kids think we were grown up enough to have coffee with the adults. We had no idea she was serving us a substitute. One time in 1st grade we had to tell what we had for breakfast and when I said I had coffee the teacher made my mother come up to school. When I was old enough to really have coffee I was so used to the taste of Postum I thought something was wrong with the coffee. That's when I discovered my mother's trick.
