Giles Corey, Pimp

Strike up the band! Ms. Educat's After School Credit Recovery Program has begun!!

I really do like the kids that come in for this program, they're grateful for the chance to make up an English credit and they're candid about their mess-ups.

I caught the group talking the other day about what they'd read in their last English class and one kid was talking about how much he loved The Crucible. It warmed me. I mean, it warms me to hear a kid like any sort of literature, but I have a history with this show, so I listen on...

"Mang, know who I like in that play? You know who wuz a pimp???
Corey, mang!!! He a pimp! He be all like MORE

I laughed so hard when I read, "He be all like 'more weight." When the kid pictures the scene in his head, do you think he sees Al Pacino in the part of Giles Corey? I'm guessing yes.
