coolness is elusive

a conversation with Caleb, this morning:
C-“I love my new Star Wars hat Mom.”
Mom-“I’m glad! Why do you like it?”
C-“It’s cool. It looks like what a teen-ager would wear.”
M-“oh, I see”
C-“Except, I need dark glasses. Can I borrow yours?”
M-“sure.”
C-“Ok. look Mom! (said with a low, deep voice) Coooool, huh?!”
M-“oh, yeah.”
C-“wait! Here! Take my picture while I am holding Dad’s car key!”
M-“ok.”
C-“And show my new watch! It’s a Timex, and that’s a grownup kind.”
M- (clicks camera) “ok, there ya go”
C-“lemmesee, lemmesee! Oh yeah. Now THAT is cool, right Mom?’
M-“yup. You are SO COOL that I will put you on myblog!
C-“well, that’s ALMOST as good as being in a magazine…”
