More random thoughts from Youngest Son, deep in the trenches of a local high school.
Why do football players and blacks call girls ‘bitches?’ Like, ‘I’m gonna go get my bitch.’ Is that supposed to be hot? What girl likes that?
So this kid tells me ‘I’ve got $400 in my wallet and $500 on my prepaid Visa card.’ And he asks me ‘What do you have?’ I tell him ‘$20. Not counting the change in my pocket.’ (laughs) ‘What the crap do you need $900 for? The most expensive thing in the cafeteria is less than ten dollars!’
How can you be getting a D in Spanish when it’s your first language? You grew up speaking it, it should be an easy A.
What is the point of Algebra? When am I ever going to use it? When I’m a cop, am I gonna need algorithms in order to arrest someone?
