Political correctness? What's that? 

 

The game was "cowboys and indians," of course!

There is no sitting 'indian style' anymore. It's now known as sitting 'criss cross applesauce' according to my youngsters. They didn't know what I was talking about telling them to sit indian style.

Yeah, and that's about the dumbest thing they could have called it... Where does the apple come into play? Are you supposed to smash it between your knees?

Oh, yeah, we played "army" too, but our dads were in the Army for real, so of course we all had to be on the same side, with imaginary "enemies" (*sigh* just how many "nurses" does an army need, when none of the heroes ever get hurt?!)  There was no stigma in choosing to be an indian.:idunno

I can remember being in the 1st grade and one of the boys coming back from lunch wearing his Roy Rogers cowboy hat, vest, chaps, six shooter cap shooter and gun belt. Nobody blinked an eye. In fact we all thought he was pretty darned cool. Ah to be 6 again......er no, never mind. Been there done that got the t-shirt.
