Aging, Humor,

Am I Like All Uncool?


There have been some great lines courtesy of movies and television shows that every time they are used, they evoke a memory or a feeling.
You had me at hello-Jerry Mcguire
Your girl Is lovely Hubbell-The Way We Were
I want the fairytale-Pretty Woman
Don?t ask me about my business-Godfather
As if!-Clueless

And this summer, we were given another little gift, courtesy of Countess de Lesseps from Real Housewives of New York. Yes, I have fessed up before to watching.  (Check out A Mom Watches Real Housewives ) I am not ashamed. In this particular episode, Luann and Heather were having an argument about having guys over their vacation home. and Luann said, ?Be cool, don?t be all like uncool.?

I now use the line daily, and of course, I started questioning my own coolness. At 43, am I cool, or all like uncool?

What a better way to test it out than on my trip to New York City with the hubby. We go there every year before we see our kids on Visiting day.
