i’m not cool anymore.

My husband fell asleep on the couch and I don’t have anyone to talk to so I’m going to blog…

Before he fell asleep we had an intense conversation about life and we decided not to be cool anymore.


I told him I was listening to Spotify today and as much as I love love love music, I just can’t keep up anymore. I’m clueless as to who is singing and the lyrics are nasty and I’m done.

Like who are these people?

At some point all the old people in the world had to decide they didn’t care about this stuff…don’t you think?

He said he had already stopped caring.

He is 2 years older than me so the natural progression of not caring about whether or not you’re cool makes this make sense.

I just want to watch a good old fashioned movie on TCM that breathes family and integrity and charm. I want to watch Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley and listen to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong…

I went on to say…

If all the Grammy Winners and Academy Award Winners and Oscar Winners showed up on my dad’s front porch he would wonder who they were and why they were there. He would still say, “Y’all get out and come on in…” because that’s what my dad says when a car pulls up to their house…but it wouldn’t be because he knew them… it would be because he’s friendly.

At some point he stopped knowing…or caring.

Call it evolution. Call it revolution. But I’m done being cool. I’ve reached that landmark moment in time where I’ve crossed over…

I will keep coloring my gray. But I’m not cool. I’m just not ready to be uncool AND gray headed….that’s too much for me…for now.

I think I hear Kurt waking up…from his evening nap…

He just told me he didn’t necessarily say he wasn’t cool anymore but that I decided that for him…okay cowboy…you go be cool. I’m over it.

love gina
