Are You a Square…or Are You a Cool Square?

It has come to my attention that the older I get the more uncool I get…or at least that’s what I thought until recently. When I was younger, I was hip and constantly on the go, even with a child in tow, and I seemed to be able to burn the candle at both ends with flair. I was constantly in motion and intent on not letting my youth get away from me. It was great fun while it lasted, but I’m no longer at that place in my life. I’ve traveled to someplace more comfortable. I’m kind of curious how the peeps in Pervia see themselves.

Are you a square or...are you a cool square?

These days, I’m happy doing the ordinary and just being. What does that mean exactly? It means I go where the wind blows me. I don’t try to meet other’s expectations. I embrace what makes me happy and make no apologies for these feelings and attitudes. If that means I hang at home in my sweats reading a novel and drinking coffee all day…then so be it.

I guess I’m thinking about this today because my son called me a “cool square” the other day. I had to ask him what he meant by that statement, as I was clueless. His response was I still knew how to enjoy myself and have a good time out on the town, but that I preferred my own company to a room full of acquaintances. He also stated that I made staying at home seem fun and that that in itself was cool because most people think staying at home is boring.

I don't know about anyone else but I loved his definition! Why? Because being square never seemed so cool...until now.

Your turn…

It took me awhile to figure this one out. I finally learned when I'm happy the the people around me are happy or at least not so crabby—LOL!

Your son's definition is spot on! Being a cool square is the best. Cool blog! You just earned a cool round green thang!

There is much to be said about enjoying the simple pleasures of life. However, I not sure if the revelation comes with age, lack of disposable income, or both. Then again, when I was in my twenties nobody was affluent but the people made the difference and it was never boring as we didn't have much money but did have a lot of fun.

Dione: I love cool round green thangs...thanks!

Luna: No...You’re a hoot...and a nutbar. Loved your comment.

WoW: You make an interesting point. With me...it would be my age that made the difference.

Maxximuss: Square is the new sexy...but "cool square" is even sexier.

Sugar: I already knew you were "cool square". It's so obvious.

Whapper: Thanks for the compliment. I can assure you...I'm faaaaarrrrrr from 16.

RJ: Okay...I'll buy the laid back hippie part...but not the old part.

Ynot: Yep...you're you...and I would NEVER dream of calling you square.

I'm a multifaceted octagon! What ever happens, is going to happen through my cache of ideas I have (8 so far?)- which is much more preferable to sitting around doing nothing!

It depends on your definition of square.. I've been told I'm so square I don't even roll downhill..but that was by a crank fiend. So hard telling. I dunno if I'm square or cool.. naw.. I think I'm just a skwirl.

I'm not really sure. I'm just me, and on different days that can have different meanings.
But I make sure everyday that I still like the person looking back at me in the mirror.
Square or not.

Good blog though.... green round cookie... okay, so maybe it's not exactly round. It's still a good thing.

Somnium: I love a guy with ideas.

Skwirl:
I've been told I'm so square I don't even roll downhill.

Ummm...that's pretty square. But being a Skwirl...that's definitely "cool square".

CL & dmbchick: Being yourselves is fantastic...very "cool square" indeed.

bettyboop:
i still think i'm a goober..lol.

Hey...I'm a goober too. Yep...you're definitely a "cool square".

bunny: Thanks! I love the way he thinks too but then again, I'm kind of partial to him. He is awfully fun. I guess I'll keep him around for few more years.
