CO-WORKER: “I need more coffee.”
ME: “It’s too late in the day for me.”
ME: “Though my Mom used to drink coffee all day and into the night. She had a nice cup of coffee just before turning in to go to bed.”
CO-WORKER: “You’re Mom was OG.”
ME: “OG? What’s that?”
CO-WORKER: “Original Gangsta.”
Now I’m boggling at the thought of Ethel Wagner, nee Ethel Markowitz, a nice Jewish lady born 1928 in Brooklyn, as a gangsta.
