When I sub, I give my all. And I usually like to get a little something back.
This past Friday I reserved the last 5 minutes of each class for my own education. And the 11th graders in English Honors and AP were happy to teach me some relevant vocabulary. I asked the students to imagine that I was 17 and had just awoke after being frozen for 20 years, that I was headed to a party, and needed some relevant words so that i could communicate with my peers and not be totally uncool. "Without using curse words or words related to sex and drugs, what are important words for me to know?" I asked.
|A sample of what I collected.|
BRUH - the newest incarnation of "brother" and "bro", not to be confused with actual sibling.
EXTRA - annoying, over the top. "Look at her yelling. She is so extra!"
FLAW- not good; "That's so flaw!"
FOH - stop right there; get out of my face (put hand up to emphasize)
GUCCI - something that is really cool and stylish; "That's so Gucci."
JIT - an insult to call someone when they are being immature, whiny, like a little kid
RACHET - bad, yucky, ugly; "You're so ratchet!"
SALTY - angry, bitter; "Why do you have to be so salty?"
THIRSTY - hungry, greedy
TURN UP - Let's party; "Let's turn up."
YOLO - you only live once
For your entertainment (definitely) and comprehension (perhaps), my daughter Sammi has acted out some of these words.
