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."
