What she wore: Black long-sleeve tee, black cropped sweater, denim skirt, black snow boots. I received mixed reviews.
Let me start by saying that this is not intended to be offensive. If you are easily offended do NOT read on–I find life itself rather humorous and am intending to share my thoughts and feelings, not offend people.
My school is 85% African American. It’s also in Arkansas, a state that I have never lived in before. For this reason, I have learned some new expressions at my current job. Here are a few:
"that go hard"–that means that you like something or think it’s cool
Driving someone–this means trying to drive someone crazy or piss them off.
Lose your manners–this means fart. As in "someone has lost thier manners." I don’t know what farting has to do with manners–my husband farts whenever he wants and doesn’t ever apologize.
Musty–this is the smell of body odor. For example, walking back from lunch, someone may exclaim, "somebody’s musty in here."
If you’ve got any more, I encourage you to share. I don’t know if these are particular to African Americans or Arkansans, but I do know that I never heard them before I worked here.
Have a good one.
