Me: No, I don't think so.
B: Come here, son.
Me: You're emphasis is all wrong. Lower your voice. Downward beat.
B: Let me tell you something, SON.
Me: Lower intonation!
B: What do you mean, SON?
Me: THIS IS NOT WORKING.
B: You've got a lot to learn, son.
Me: You definitely do not have enough street cred to use this word. Toughen up a bit, get some more tattoos and start a couple bar brawls and then maybe you can use that jawn.
B: Use that what?
Me: That jawn.
B: That john? Like a toilet? Or someone who frequents prostitutes?
Me: No. J-A-W-N. Jawn. Like a thing. It's a word for anything. Like, pass me that jawn. Or, did you see that jawn?
B: I have never heard that word in my life. That's not a real word. You're making words up again.
Me: Look, according to Urban Dictionary it's a word that means anything and everything. Oh, looks like it originated in Philly. That's why you've never heard of it. You didn't earn any street cred in Philly like I did, SON.
B: If I can't use son, you can't use jawn.
Me: Totally using both from now on just to spite you.Tweet
