On “Cool”

Monday Morning Rant: I am at fault of using this term myself, but nothing bothers me more than this one word response of “cool”. Of course, in person you can get an idea of how that cool was used in the tone of the person’s voice, but in email or texting that is impossible at times. And even when you know that it has casually replaced ‘ok’, it has this non caring feel to it. For example, Q: How Do you like Monday mornings? A: It’s cool. Q: Are you ok? A: I am cool. Q: Hey, look at this new thing I made. A: That’s cool.

You see where I am going here…It is a word that is overused with little or no emotion attached to it sometimes. And I don’t know about you but I like my words with a little more personality, than them be just ‘cool’. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ok ending rant now, Happy Monday Everyone!
