Help me

Posted by Emma Barrett on October 16, 2000

Hey Guys,
Does anyone know the derivation of the expression, "in a coon's age". I used it and suddenly was made aware that it might have a racial overtone to it. What is the derivation of the expression? And further, does anyone know of a sight to help with future colloquial questions?
