Now that’s cool
PROMPT May 11th

What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now? Is there anything that has become cool in recent years that wasn’t cool in your youth?

“Cool” wasn’t a cool word when I was growing up in the 40’s. Cool meant it wasn’t warm.
I suppose all my childhood games were ‘cool’ such as collecting cards, marbles and hopscotch.
In the sixties the mini skirts were cool, beehive hairdos and full skirts with lots of petticoats. Also the most amazing thing to happen was the moon landing. I don’t know what words we used then to describe that. Probably “fabulous, amazing and awe inspiring.

Besides the words such as cool, awesome and “like,” everything that’s trendy nowadays wasn’t in my youth. In fact as there was so little technology, everything about today didn’t exist. Today’s kids have no concept how “cool” they are.
