Conversation, 1970s

My mother used to watch a lot of American police-dramas on TV. She had often heard the word Caucasian used in connexion with the victim of a murder, and so had concluded that it must mean a dead body. When she once used the word in that sense, I told her that it didn’t mean what she thought it did. She would not believe me.
To convince her, I had to show her the entry for Caucasian in a dictionary.
