I also grew up in Mississippi, and I do remember hearing the term "canker
sore". But I seldom heard it and was never sure what it meant. I'm sure I
do even now. I remember thinking what an ugly sore it must refer to and I
would shudder to think about it. Maybe I thought it related to cancer.
I'm confident that we didn't think that Nice People would have anything
so nasty sounding as a "canker sore."
