Bow Bow!

It cracks me UP when the children on facebook I knew as babies at my mom's church are very teenager-y.  One of their favorite phrases is 'bow bow.'  Like you do something amazing or you look great, "Bow!"  If it's really amazing, "Bow! Bow!"  It's some remedial rapper's favorite phrase.  (For the record, I refuse to add anyone under 21 and depending on maturity, some people just get ignored or blocked period but every once in a while I look at their pictures and the confusing nonsensical spellings and misspellings, open-mouthed.  How do you not go crazy looking at all your extra Es and Zs?  Stop trying to make me feel old.)

I walked off campus yesterday feeling more productive than I have in the last two years.  I have a ton of things to do but I feel capable of achieving them.  I would love occasional re-charge times and will probably take them regularly but I feel like an effective teacher as I watch the light bulbs go off in my students' heads and I feel like a good student as I get things accomplished.  It's really cool and exciting to be here!  So bow, bow, kiddos!

Let me just say this right now: what the heck? Bow? Bow bow? This is the first I've heard of this...so I guess that makes me extra old.

I've never heard this bow bow phrase...it sounds silly, but then again I'm sure my granny thought, "it's all good" was silly.

I've had to block and refuse to friend people as well. I can't stand all the short hand typing and respelling of words.

Okay, now I sound old, and we all know that I'm young, hip, and fabulous, lol.

Bow! Bow! I too hate the writing, but caught myself doing a variation of it. Dang I'm such a follower! LOL!

Bow bow. Yeah...I'm pretty sure that one won't be catching on with the more...mature set! At least I hope not. Is it bow like bow-wow or bow like row?

Bow bow?? How dumb is that? Which new silly rapper made that one up? Wait, don't tell me. I'm sure I've never heard of him either. I guess I'm old along with happynappy, notso and nerd girl. *lol*

sooooo, you're condoning the "bow bow" terminology?

That is awesome when you have moments of clarity and everything makes sense. You know your purpose and you're know you're on the right track. Nice!
