He said, “Cool.” Cool with a period at the end…

So my 19 yr old daughter just came running to me and said, “Mom!  He said, “Cool.” Cool with a period at the end!  She is a writer like me, hence the problem with just a period at the end of Cool and not an exclamation point like there should have been.  Now she strongly believes that her boyfriend is going to break up with her tonight, for lack of the exclamation point in his response to her text.  Oh the woes of life these days…  It really doesn’t get any better than this!  I’m sorry but I can’t stop laughing…  🙂  Does this make me a bad parent?

  3. Oh, how I love this! But “Cool” with a period at the end is the ultimate in cool, isn’t it. Laid back. Dry. Cool man. Just cool.

  15. Totally. Have you ever fell victim to over analysing someone’s message before replying … you know so they can get the most …optimal response. 🙉

  16. All the time and then it happens to me by other writers too. I get over analyzed all the time, especially because I write poetry. 😀

  17. I know the struggle. But… thats just the key. Because your a poet, you tend to observe more. Dialect, tone, emphasis or lack of … All play into your impressions of things.

  18. I guess life is just not a book for us to read when we want to learn, it all just happens in so many ways =) This story was a great reminder of how we need to let life just happen =)
