What about us very cool aging adults? We inevitably will not stay that way either. Life is always made up of a temporary state of mind where confidence, success and happiness ebbs and flows.

Golf is one game that clearly demonstrates this.

Dang it afk.

Even when I think I agree with you, your spelling annoys me.

It's "they" not "the".

I was lucky.

I was not one of the cool kids. I was in the computer lab playing around with Advanced Basic. The "cool" kids were too busy ignoring me.

Now, 25 years later, I ignore the men who used to be so cool. The women are thirsty, especially the single ones. If I were not married, banging a woman over 40 years old is so easy.

They (the cool kids) are just now realizing that they cant get back that productive time between the ages of 17 and 26 where they screwed off and thought the world was like their high school clique.

There is this girl I adored in middle school and high school. She would never have dated me. I had my share of friends, but I wasn't with the ubber cool crowd. I thought she was so hot.

Now I cant get her to stop trying to friend me on facebook.

Just because everyone else does something does not make it or you "cool"... for instance facebook.

You misunderstand. I realized early on the game. Now, later in life, the game is turned on the people from high school...

I had no need to be in their "cool" group..certainly don't need it now.

I don't get it. Why don't you just accept her friend request? She's probably not trying to bang you, dummy. Just because you weren't cool back then doesn't mean you're cool now.
