I Put the C in Cool (or maybe just the ool in drool)


over the hill I saw a bumper sticker on the back of a mini van today that read “I used to be cool”. Doesn’t that about sum it up? As the big 40 is creeping up on me in a couple weeks, I am reminded of my geezer status. I used to party into the wee hours of the morning, sleep for an hour or two, go put in an 8 hour work shift and then do it all over again. Friday nights were reserved for some spectacular event. Now, Friday nights are usually spent beached on the couch, munching popcorn and watching American Horror Story. If I am forced to stay up past 11pm, I consider that really late.

One day, I was appalled at what came out of my mouth; “This isn’t music! When we were growing up we had good tunes!” Actually, I do like a lot of the new music. But, some of it I just can’t stand. It doesn’t make any sense to me. But, when my daughter and all of her friends love it (One Direction), that’s how I know I am old and not very cool. I’m not so hip with the fashion either. Floral print stretch pants, a ruffled shirt and 2 different colored socks just isn’t a look I am ready to flaunt. How about the TV shows where 25 year olds are portraying teenagers? Give me Saved By The Bell any day. Although, I heard old Screech was in the slammer for murder?? What is this world coming to? See, another geezer phrase. It’s inevitable…
