Convos From the Hood - Fo Shizzle

Convos From the Hood
Vol. 14
Fo Shizzle
 

There is rarely a dull moment when one works
in an inner city high school. 
 Join me for a snap shot of what happens Monday through Friday between the bells.

Coach: I can sort of cook a little.
Daffy: Ramen noodles and boiling water don’t count
Coach: *shudder* I don’t do Ramen. I went to my bro’s house for dinner. My sister in law made ghetto spaghetti.
Daffy: Imma fraid to ask
Coach: Ramen noodles with chopped up hotdog
Daffy: I don’t want to hear any more *gag*
------------------------------------------
Cody: Is that your real name? Daffy?
Me: Nope. Its my stage name. *SNAP SNAP* Haaaay!
Cody: *eye roll*
--------------------------------------
Inastar: I asked her what her name was and she said “Ha”. I said, “Whatchew laughn bou? I just axe what you name?”. She said, “Ha”. *shaking head* Weirdass Chinese names….
-----------------------------------
Keisha: WHAT?!?! You don’t like fried Oreos? You are NOT black!
--------------------------------
Daffy: We have a tornado drill this period – fyi.
Boy: We go outside?
Daffy: No, that’s a fire drill. This one is a tornado drill.
Boy: Okay, so we’re going outside? It’s raining.
Daffy: No. We meet in the basement behind the lockerroom…
Boy: We’re doing a fire drill?
Daffy: Yes. Be sure to hold your breath. The WHOLE.TIME.

With prom and graduation right around the corner, there are bound to be good moments to report back to you. I even considered voluntering to work Prom just so I could share the experience with you all. Of course, then I walked out of the green haze and found my sanity. I love you all but I'm not sure I love you THAT much.

Heather said...

I don't think I would like fried oreos. And the tornado drill one, too much!

Moooooog35 said...

Ghetto Spaghetti sounds amazingly good.

And by 'amazingly good' I mean 'like vomit.'

Brittney said...

Cara Smith said...

Ghetto spaghetti...my son might actually eat that. Probably not mixed together, but at the same time.

Michelle Pixie said...

Ghetto spaghetti?! I just threw up a little in my mouth. Disgusting!

Oh but the prom could be so much fun! I bet you'd get enough fodder to carry you through the summer. ;-)

June said...

Pinkus makes himself ghetto spag.
It's gross.
And this is while I am cooking a respectable dinner none the less.

Boy sounds like a real bright bulb there...

purseblogger said...

Ghetto spaghetti, gross.
The prom would be totally fun. And fun for us. :)

Jeney Peney said...

My grandma used to make us scrambled eggs with hot dogs when we were kids. Is that considered some kind of ghetto skillet?

Fire drills, tornado drills, power drills... whats the difference, really? :-P

Aunt Juicebox said...

I ate ramen for years, and still love that stuff. Yum. Not so much with hot dogs in it, although I'm thinking about serving that to Melissa next time she brings her whole family to dinner, thanks for the idea!

Ian said...

Fried Oreos? I've heard of ketchup on spaghetti, but never hotdogs. Sounds good.

singedwingangel said...

Wellmy nephew adds miracle whip to Ramen ummm yeah.. and bleeech to hot dogs that is NASTY ...

inannasstar said...

ghetto spaghetti! That's a great one, I'll be sure to serve it at my next dinner party.

BigSis said...

My son would love ghetto spaghetti. He loves my "hamburger disaster."

Homesick Cajun said...

I've never even heard of fried oreos but they sound artery clogging to say the least!!

The Blue Zoo said...

LOL @ Ed! ~ Lucky Wifey, I guess!

Ghetto Spaghetti?? Ew. I think I'd rather have Spaghetti Tacos!

Never had a deep fried Oreo. But I do LOVE deep fried Twinkies!! MMMmmmmmmmmm

Big Mama Cass said...

Two Normal Moms said...

Ghetto spaghetti - I just retained water thinking about it. (besides the utter horror of the idea of floating bits of hotdog in my ramen)

Two Normal Moms said...

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Ok, when I hear 'axe' being said instead of 'ask' I go apeshit. I hate that.

And wtf is a Inastar and why is she making fun of someone elses name?

Pat said...

Can't say I ever heard of, nor would I ever want to EAT - Ghetto spaghetti. Yuk!

My husband ate a fried Oreo in Vegas. Does that make him Black? I'm just saying. I ate a fried Twinkie. What dies that make me? Just stupid?

I think outside in the rain is the PERFECT place to practice a tornado drill. DUH!

adrienzgirl said...

*snap snap* Haaaay! So made me laugh out loud, all the while bobbing my in that small circular motion that says...I got me some swaggah!

OMG! and ghetto spaghetti? GACK!

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

hey, i haven't tried fried oreos either b/c i am afraid that i will like them, first of all, and second of all, i am afraid i will turn black. not that that would be a bad thing but black would not be good with this blonde weave i got.

"Julie" said...

omg i almost vommed over ghetto spaghetti...dear lord

you should be canonized as a saint. srsly.

Travis said...

The hell of it is...and don't judge me, I can't stress that enough...I actually like ghetto spaghetti AND fried Oreos.

So that makes me black I guess.

I'll put in a requisition for a bigger penis.

Nancy C said...

I would totally eat the ghetto spaghetti.

Dual Mom said...

Daffy is such a fabulous stage name. Is it just Daffy like Cher is just Cher?

Ghetto spaghetti? I'd rather eat shit I think.

Aphrodite's Mortal Friend (ME) said...

Thank God the Ramen w/ chopped up hot dog made you gag too ... good thing is, the thought of it has killed my appetite- maybe I'll lose a pound today ;-) Thanks coach!

Joann Mannix said...

We had this old lady babysitter who used to put canned tuna on pasta and then add spaghetti sauce. I am not kidding you. That and her unpasteurized milk from her cow she used to bring over for us to drink made me want to kill myself and my parents.

What a great post.

MiMi said...

Ghetto spaghetti....ugh. I have never heard of that! Sick.
Hey, is there ANY way you can take pictures of the prom you can post? I'll pay.

Jewels Diva® said...

The education system just never seems to work.

Lauren said...

LOL! That last kid has some troubles....
Oh, and I like fried Oreos...what does that make me? Besides extra fluffy, that is. ;)

Coffeypot said...

Spaghetti is good to eat, but with hotdogs? Coochie is good, too, but I wouldn’t want a hotdog in it. And HA is a great Chinese name. My Chinese name in the gay community is Hung Chow.

Together We Save said...

Gettho spag .... YUCK!!

WhisperingWriter said...

Okay ew. Ghetto spaghetti sounds disgusting. Hot dogs do NOT belong in spaghetti.

The Empress said...

Oh, yes, you DO love us that much.

Now, turn around, and march right back to the sign up sheet.

p.S. threw up in my mouth a little with the ghetto spaghetti.

Mad Woman said...

WHAT? No prom goodies? I'm not sure I can forgive that. I'll let you know after I make ghetto spaghetti for my family.

blueviolet said...

Now that's funny because my husband was just explaining ghetto spaghetti to me. GROSS!!!

Tamara aka Cheapskate Mom said...

LOL I sure miss living in San Diego...your ghetto tales bring me back!

HA! Love it.

Oh and ghetto sketti in my home is sketti noodles and catsup. Not ketchup...catsup is always cheaper!

Shamrock said...

It's not ghetto spaghetti unless they use ketchup too!
At least that is what I have been told! Not like I would do anything like that!

Momma Fargo said...

LMAO! I'm gagging with you on the ghetto spaghetti. Creative. Maybe they should just use the can stuff. LOL.

Dame Nuisance said...

Never had a fried Oreo, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it. *looks down* Yup, I'm definitely not black.

The ghetto spaghetti was priceless, too!

Erin said...

ramen noodles w/ hotdog? omg. i'm gonna barf.

Danielle said...

I must have a lot of white trash in me, cause I love me some Ramen!!

Salt said...

GAGGG Ramen and HOT DOGS? Those are two of my least favorite things in the same dish. If you could even call that a "dish". More like I'm going to have night terrors about it.

Cheeseboy said...

Fried oreos?! Never heard of them, but I am as white and Jewish as it gets.

Cool to see another teacher blogging. Although, your inner city high school is probably A LOT different than my gifted first grade class.

Alicia said...

woman...did they say FRIED OREOS?? blech...but oye. that ghetto spaghetti made me vomit slightly in my mouth. naaaaasty!

JennyMac said...

the only thing worse than a hot dog or ramen is a combo bowl of both. ICK.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

snap snap ... hmmm is that the crabs talking?
