the cost of being cool....

A few days ago, I was on a business trip in Florida with Robert, a business associate and old friend. Anyway, as we went to the rental car area, they told us to go to the area and pick out the model we wanted, just like the TV commercial.

I started moving to the normal, four door, functional car with a trunk. Next to it, Robert is eyeing up a Mitsubishi Eclipse, sort of a mid-life crisis sports car. He points to it and says, "why not?" OK, I think, we'll give it a try.

And then, it came to me, not for one second did I consider taking the cool car, not for one second. And then I thought "am I that uncool?"

After a day in that car, I decided, I am.


  1. Hey! Where was the yellow one? We could have looked even cooler!!!

  2. Va-room, Zoom-zoom! Nice wheels! I hope you gave Robert a turn driving. (Winks)

  3. Well Dad, I couldn't have said it better myself. There is a certain quality, or 'coolness' to being uncool.
