I just wanted to share a conversation that I had with my dad (actually through texting in the beginning of class).
Me: VA sad about your pictures "Papa Bacchus is baller yo"
Dad: I have no idea what "baller yo" means. Hope it is good :)
Me: "baller, yo" - baller is a really cool envied (kind of best of best) guy and "yo" provides emphasis
Me: Baller is kind a synonym for pimp. It's a man who has reached success and wealth, or a thug who has made it to the top (comliments of urbandictionary.com)
Dad: I am so pleased you know this stuff.
Me: Important knowledge . Today's literacy! (As I sit in my literacies and education class)
Dad: I prefer Keats.
