  •  Funny you should say that (3+ / 0-)

    A few years ago, a friend got married to a man I had known many years ago (early 70s), and even then he was, shall we say, a less-than-desirable person to be around.

    As several of us were heading home in my car, we stopped to say good-bye to the bride (mostly) and groom. He leaned into the car and started telling a story about his childhood...

    "We used to have this darkie on the farm..."

    and I have no recollection of the rest of the story. We were all so flabbergasted by his use of that word, it was just about the only thing we talked about all the way home (50 miles).

    This guy is in his 70s and pretty much an asshole Virginia good old boy, but it was pretty surreal. We came to the conclusion that he just said it to irritate us since we're just a bunch of commie DFHs anyway.
