Sooo Friday night I had a wonderful time at my friend’s garage party. We all had to dress “commen”. In other words you had dress yourself in something in which you would NEVER be seen in public. EVER. It was fascinating. Truly fascinating. I had never seen my friends look so… slutty. Obviously we had to take things a little further and each of us got a hooker name. I was hooker #cow by the way, in case you were wondering and hoping to visit my non-existent street corner. I offer jelly beans with my services.
As for the video above… that is one of our native celebrity singers. [No comment] The song basically is about being cool and so on and so forth. You probably won’t understand a word of it since it is in Afrikaans but oh well. Shiny content for my blog. So… are you common or are you cool? That is the real question…
Cool is not doing what your parents want you to do.
Every teenager should know by now that you never listen to your parents, it is simply not cool. If you want drink yourself into a stupor or slowly drag your lungs through a metaphorical fire then please go ahead. After all you want to be cool and not common and using a healthy dose of brain power simply is not called for in situations like these. Most people are under this odd impression that drinking, drugs and smoking is the only way to be accepted by other and that refusing to take part in activities such as these will give you a one way ticket to uncoolville and a life of social outcastism. Yeah see what I did there? Social outcastism, you heard me right. Social outcastism. In reality it is a load of crap and the moment you pass your adolescent years and actually start working then drinking, drugs and in some cases smoking will be the uncoolest thing ever. I promise you that. Don’t fall victim to the lies and actually listen to your parents no matter how badly you are itching to torture your bedroom door.
Cool is looking like someone cool.
If said famous person were to wear pants on their head and shoes on their shoulders and dog poop on their feet, would you as well? After all, doing what the celebrities do that are mostly brain-dead and drunk on fame is considered cool by society? How do you know said celebrity had not been high on egg fumes? They do crazy things. Things that should not be followed by others of lesser fame or non-existent in most people’s cases. Leave the celebrities to do what they do best, act stupid and entertain us. Just because they do something does not mean that you should be doing it as well.
Cool is having a nickname that everybody knows but nobody is really sure how you got it.
Oh the irony of that sentence. We had situation like this one Friday night. One of the human beings attending the party had a very peculiar nickname and we were all dying to know where he got it. Obviously the person in question refused so we had to draw our own conclusions. NEVER allow a woman free reign on her imagination because the things that will pop out of there would scare the living crap out of any non-female creature. That would be men in case you were wondering.
Write in lower case and symbols.
Never mind the strange fact that it is impossible to read the stuff but apparently writing in lower case and using lots and lots of symbols is the new in thing these days. It’s like reading messages from the aliens. You have to sit several hours and decode the stuff and when you finally manage to do that you realize that it actually says nothing. Greaaat there goes half my day. If you want to waste someone’s time and drive them to the brink of curious insanity then please. Write a meaningless message in symbols and lower case and post it on a social networking site. The madness shall commence.
Do it, everybody is doing it.
