I Used To Be Cool

I was recently searching for my car in a Walmart parking lot, praying my Ben & Jerry’s wasn’t melting, when I had a moment. I literally stopped walking and stood still for a moment. A bumper sticker on the back of a mini-van said matter-of-factly:“I Used to Be Cool”. Me too, girl. I wanted to [...]
