Mom says I have to stop calling the workers on our house "Mexis."
She says that they are all Americans and I have to either call them Americans or Mexican Americans.
I pointed out to her that they spoke Spanish. She pointed out to me that she spoke Spanish as well. Mmmmmmmm.
I thought a little and pointed out to her that she called me a "Burm" from time to time. She said that "Burm" was short for Burmese and that there was no negative connotation to the abbreviation. Hmmmmm.
I told her I didn't say it to them, but only to her, but she said it didn't matter.
She asked me if I wanted to risk hurting someone's feelings.
I told her that they are hurting my ears pounding on the outside of the house, and disturbing my morning and afternoon naps.
She told me to move on.
