is the classic ‘DAMN self’ phrase omg
‘I bought this house by my DAMN self, I don’t owe you anything!’
‘I figured it out my DAMN self!’
‘You better buy that shit your DAMN self! I’m not buying that!’
I always imagine the hen in that story about a hen baking bread alone and having other people want to come eat it as being a racial allegory
Wherein the hen is black and says, ‘I BAKED THIS BREAD BY MY DAAAN SELF.’
“I can do bad all by my damn self”
I’m partial to “-ass” as a suffix for everything.
“Get yo blackass in this house”
“That’s some serious-ass shit”
A rare one I had to describe to a class that I enjoy is “siddity” as in “high siddity”.
A lot of the words my grandma and her folks used have died out.
OOOH I say siddity ALL THE DAMN TIME!!!!
God I love AAVE
