Not So Cool Kids

I saw this sticker on the parking meter at Union Square and thought it was hilarious. It is so cool to be uncool nowadays.

So were you a cool kid or an uncool kid?

*lol* Who or what is Origami? Making things of paper can't have anything to do with it.

It is a cool sign, as you say, and then there is the parking meter. I thought these were all done away with. Or I should say they were all done away with here where I live and in most neighboring cities.

I may have thought at the time I was cool, but looking at some of my family's old photos, I definitely DID NOT look too cool.

I've always felt decidedly uncool.

When I was at school I wasn't cool but nowadays I would be the most popular kid!

I always thought origami were über-cool. I am lucky to have grown up in a place where there was no such distinction at school. At least, it was never discussed and felt as it is here.

I love this sign! Just do what you love to do, and don't worry if it's considered cool or not!
Best lesson I ever learned. I was not cool. I am still not cool, and I will never be cool, nor do I want to be cool, according to whatever the definition of "cool" is!

If you had met me, you would know if I was cool or not.

I was already close to 6' tall when I was in high school so nobody bothered me. Actually, I was quite the bully in grade school.

Uncool but totally a big bully.
