Not Recently, I Hope

MIL: “…and he was chasing after the cutest little girl, I think she was half black. She had that old fashioned pickaninny hair with the two little pigtails at the back… you never hear that word anymore, pickaninny…”

DIL: “There’s a reason.”

MIL: “Well it was the cutest thing…”

I did get an email two weeks later, with the admission that she does “use the wrong word sometimes”. Um, yeah.

  1. At least your MIL offered up an apology of sort, but why did she have to wait so long to do so?

  2. My pop uses the word. He’s 70 and grew up in the south. He doesn’t say it in public and I don’t comment on stuff like that when I visit him.
