I'll Have to Give Away All of my Wooly Socks......

"Prague Sky" by Cara Kansala  -  Prague, the city I lived in when I was "cool".
Yesterday after leaving the hair dresser-beauty-parlour boutique:
ME: WOW! My hair is very cool. I have the coolest hair-do since time began.
HER: Ahh, it is fabulous. I don’t think people call it a “hair-do” anymore and I don’t think people say “cool” anymore either. But it IS an awesome cut.
ME: What people? Who doesn’t say “cool” ?  My hair IS cool...I am too!
HER: Well, my love, I wouldn’t go so far as to say you are cool. That ship might have sailed the day you started putting Benefibre on our cereal, but you ARE very interesting.
ME: NOPE. I am cool. Name 3 things about me that are not cool.
HER: (and I have to say, She answered A LOT faster than I would have expected)
You are wearing pull-on corduroy pants and knee-high pantyhose. Your slippers are in a cloth bag in your lap and you know every word to every Barry Manilow song he ever wrote.  This morning you said “good grief”.
ME: ACTUALLY, I am wearing “Action Pants” and trouser socks....and besides, that’s five things.
HER: Hmm. Can you name five things about you that ARE “cool”?
ME: Well, I can still do the entire rap for “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, I make awesome home-made Sangria, I own the complete boxed set of “The Golden Girls”, I can still do my entire dance routine to “Eye of the Tiger” and I can play the ukulele.
HER: WELL, you’ve got me there kiddo. I won’t go so far as to say “COOL”, but you ARE lukewarm.
ME:HMMM. Thanks.
Lukewarm. I guess this afternoon I’ll have to do one of my ABBA routines so She can remember just how cool I am. My only hope is that if I used to be cool and now I am lukewarm, maybe by the time I'm 92, I'll be a hottie!
And at least my hair is groovy. Thank you Dorothy-the-best-hair-fairy-since-time-began for that!
Currently, BooBoo and I have the same Hair-Do. Pink with short-cropped bangs. Very lukewarm indeed!
A flock of very cool birds that landed in my lukewarm trees.

Nice post, really nice. I also suggest some blogs that you can be interest. Are Boca do Lobo Posts.
The brand is called Boca do Lobo and brings together concepts like luxury, originality and creativity.
I'm sure it would make a good article in your magazine. The Boca do Lobo that is a Portuguese company produces furniture using fine materials in their creations.
They use reference styles from the past (like Gothic), coupled with current trends, as well as the craftsmanship and technology of the present.
The result is a contemporary pieces with a traditional touch.
