It's not everyday I do something considered "cool". And by that I mean cool by teenage standards.
I've gushed about my recently turned 13 years old Godson in this space more times than I can count, but it's never been about anything cool I actually did.
Well, today that all changed. I got the rarely seen "you rock" smile-- the one that curves the corners of his lips ever so slightly so as not to actually lose his cool factor, but enough for me to know I'm getting a thumbs up from him.
It was easy really, all I had to do was listen to one song over, and over, and over again-- Blasting as loud as my car's stereo would play-- With all the windows down-- For 32 minutes on the drive home from school.
Yes, I thought I would lose my mind, but it was worth those curled lips and sideways glance from my guy letting me know I was rocking it for him.
Although the song is still banging around in my head several hours later, and even though I have absolutely no idea why he requested the "Ghostbusters" theme song, I have to say, it totally made my day.
And yes, I'm easy-- I'll do it again for that brief, shining, "cool" moment.
Done anything cool lately?
