Thoughts On the Nature of ‘Cool’
by

One of my blog buddies tipped me to this quote from Terry Pratchett:

The monastery of the Monks of Cool is found in a laid back valley in the lower Ramtop mountains. They are a reserved and secretive sect and believe that only through ultimate coolness can the universe be comprehended, that black goes with everything, and that chrome will never truly go out of style. To become a fully accepted Monk, a novice is given the following test. Several outfits are laid out in front of him and the tester asks, “Yo, my son, which of these outfits is the most stylish thing to wear?” The correct answer is “Hey, whatever I select.”

You know the type, right? Further thoughts on the day I stopped trying to be one of the Cool Kids. If you ever become an ex-Cool Kid, you’ll know what I mean.
