COOL AS I AM

This morning I got on the el and took a seat in front of a high school kid with a modified mohawk. I did not have my mp3 player on. I sat down and realized I could hear his mp3 player, as well as the two high school girls across the aisle arguing about the vibrate feature on their cell phones. As I am opening my bag to get my mp3 player out, I realize that I can actually hear the song mohawk kid is listening to. I realize that I know the song, and that it is actually on my mp3 player too.

So now I'm wondering, am I as cool as 14 year old with a mohawk, or is that kid as cool as a mid-30s attorney in the Loop? Either way there is something very, very wrong.

David,

It was the new Kanye. The tune I recognized was Gold Digger. Given the extent to which Kanye is considered "pop" I guess it is better for the old lawyer to be listening to it than Mohawk Boy...

well - you have to choose your music, and your company. I want to be alone in the quiet of night.
Not really but it sounded good.
