Student: "Mrs. L... people think I'm pretty gangster."

Me:"Gangster? They think you're gangster?"

Student: "Pardon?"

Me: "Yup, pretty gangster... a polite gangster."

Student: "I'm only a polite gangster to you. I'm a mean gangster to everyone else."

Uh-huh, right.

And here I thought it was gangsta, you know.. a little ghetto. Apparently not.

PS- I totally taught all my kids to say pardon instead of "huh?" and now the parents are all up in my business about who made their kids polite. Um, hello.. I did. I have to listen to them for 6 hours straight, I'll be darned if they are not polite while talking to me!
