Pink Pig

July 28, 2010 Roberta Estes

No, it’s not a “People of Walmart” picture, but one from my travels someplace.  My Mother, God rest her Soul, was quite in a snit one day when at the Indiana State Fair, a “pink pig” had beaten out one of her prized antiques in the toothpick holder category.  Well, she didn’t EXACTLY call it a pink pig.  I do recall that my Baptist deaconess Mother called it “that G**D**ned pink pig” and she was quite in an uproar.  Mostly, we thought it was quite funny, which made her even angrier. I do believe after lunch the entire household emptied to the barn or other “pressing errands” because otherwise we would have split our sides laughing and to do that would have been to take our very lives in our hands. 

However, in our family, you never get away with something like that, and for the rest of her life, she was “gifted” with a series of pink pigs.  Pink pig plates, toothpick holders, many of them, vases, fabric, hotpads, towels, sweatshirts…….we always thought of Mom when we saw pink pigs…..and when you’re looking for them….pink pigs are everywhere!!!
