Apparently, I'm not as hip as I thought I was.
Today, with one of my classes, I was trying to be humorous (again, my downfall) and, while doing my "homemade-JJ Evans- jive-turkey- swagger-walk" across the room, I made the statement (referring to the narrator of the story that we were reading) that,
"He wanted to have a l'il shorty by his side."
Unanimously, the crowd went wild.
Not because they appreciated my hip-ness.
But because I obivously had none.
I was promptly and emphatically corrected on my mispronunciation of the term "shawty".
And what really surprised me was that almost every single student knew the "correct" way to pronounce this slang term (how could they know and I not know!?), and they were serious about correcting me.
So, what can I say? This English-teacher-shawty stands corrected.
