You learn something new every day.

We're learning some new lingo over here at casa de Long Way from the Theta House and suffice it to say, we are feeling a little over the hill.
These boys definitely have a way of saying things that is totally hilarious but can be even more funny coming out of the mouths of my babes.

anything cool or good looking but you have to say it like this...

Now, my children say it all the time. "Mom, Spongebob got himself a new jellyfish net. It's TIIITE."
"That tie-dye frog Webkinz is KALEEN."

Pronounced "Muh". This means practically anything and is almost always used in conjunction with Clean or Tight. Sometimes, Tee will get really into it and shout, about say a cupcake or a new Lego action figure; "Dat MUH KALEEN!" Unfortunately, Trey and I looked in the Urban Dictionary today only to find out that MUG is short for a really bad word. So bad I can't even put a little of it on here or I'll get kicked KALEEN off the Family Friendly Blogroll. We'll be replacing that one and are open for suggestions.

D and Darius tell the kids they're earning 30,000 cool points for doing cool stuff like flips on the trampoline or getting a new haircut.
30,000 cool points? Oooh, how do I get some?
Apparently my fly Nike kicks earned me some and so did my boots with the fur. My dancing apparently made me lose 30,000 cool points and so did my Lemon Linguini with Shrimp and Asparagus so now it looks like I'm back to square one. Misery loving company and all, this morning, I questioned the cool points of the kid we saw on our way to school. He had on some KALEEN jeans so he got 30,000 cool points for those but he was saggin' so much he was walking funny just to try to keep his pants from falling down. Shouldn't he lose cool points for that?
I lost another 30,000 just for asking such a stupid question.

Describes the way they like their jeans.
"Like heavy starch?"
"No Mama Melissa, HARD. Like they could almost stand up by themselves...with a crease." There's no doubt in my mind the boy mentioned before was walking funny because he had some serious chafing issues going on.

BOOSIE: A haircut that is shorter on the sides and longer on top. According to the boys, Trey has this haircut. Here is a picture of the originator of the Boosie. While you're visiting this site, don't forget to vote on your favorite size rims.

and here's a picture of Trey. I totally see it.

For another example of the Boosie, here's a picture of Simon Cowell.

I think Trey might have just earned himself 30,000 cool points!

I'm so glad you looked up 'mug' on urban that one fooled me into believing it was a clean, harmless 'hip' new term as well. The frequency with which it is used, really makes it seem harmless...kinda made me sick when they told me the true meaning, and how many times I've heard 4 and 5 year olds repeat the same phrase.
You truly are becoming DA hoodmama!
(sorry I ditched this was chilly out there!)

Misty said...

Really educational, surely you should get 30,000 cool points for that!

I guess I will have to call you to find out what mug means.

I am SO glad you posted this! Olivia told me today that Tee's hair was Boosie. I had NO CLUE what she was talking about. I told her that I had no idea what that meant, but his hair did look pretty "fresh".
She then followed up with a couple of different pronunciations as if SHE must be the one who had it wrong, since her 'totally rad' (geeky) teacher had no clue.
