Cornbread Story

A story my mother loved to tell about me involved making cornbread. At four, I was very interested in learning to cook. I was always wanting to stir anything that was mixed with a spoon or a spatula. One day mom was making cornbread for dinner, and right about the time she got all the ingredients in the bowl, the phone rang. We only had one phone back then, and it was in the bedroom. She went to answer the phone, and I saw my opportunity to “help.” I dragged a chair over to the counter, got a spoon, and began to stir the cornbread mixture. Unfortunately my stirring was a little erratic, and quite a bit of the buttermilk, egg, and cornmeal made it to the linoleum floor. When mother returned to the kitchen, unaware the floor was quite wet, she turned the corner in her bare feet, and made quite an impressive slide across the kitchen floor before slamming into the back door. Upon rising back to her feet, she slid her way back to me, and promptly put me out the back door. She then called my aunt who lived next door, and proceeded to give me away for a couple of hours. According to most accounts, I belonged to my aunt quite a bit between the ages of 4 to 6.
