What does it take to be “cool”these days, or “with it?” This tendsto change with the generations soit’s sometimes hard to keep up. Myobservations of young people seemto indicate that guys need to wearloose-fitting pants hung low, outra-geously expensive tennis shoes,and baggy shirts. An occasionalpiercing of an ear or somethingmight help too. Gals are prone tohaving multiple piercings, not onlyof the ears but maybe of an eye-brow, cheek, lip, nose, or eventongue. Neither are the girls intoloose clothing that much. Hairstyle has something to do withthings too, but I can’t quite naildown the details of that. I do some-times notice dye jobs in bright col-ors and that may include severalcolors on one head of hair. It can beattractive or occasionally justhighly noticeable.Personally, I gave up trying to becool years ago. It never matteredmuch to me. I didn’t want to standout as someone really strange, butneither did I have patience enoughto spend much time dealing withmy appearance. If I was covered inthe right places and wearing warmclothes in the winter and cool onesin the summer, that was goodenough. I recall that in high schoolthe boys all wore their shirtsleevesa certain way. This involved thesleeves being unbuttoned andfolded up just so many times. I hadtrouble getting the hang of thatand discontinued the practice be-fore long. Butch haircuts were allthe rage for a while, and I had oneuntil I tired of the butch-wax thatmade them stand up properly.That was nasty stuff and often gotspread to caps and pillows. It waseven hard to get off the hands afterapplication to the hair.I’ve always really liked the looksof some sunglasses, especially theones that are mirror-like. Unfortu-nately, I wear regular glasses fulltime which complicates matters.The sunglasses you clip on are notattractive. If you have prescriptionsunglasses, then you have to carrya spare pair of plain ones aroundfor inside. When I wore contacts fora while, I thought, “Aha, now I canwear nifty sunglasses” and boughtan expensive pair. They proved te-dious and have just ridden aroundin the glove box of the car for years.Practically speaking, my eyesaren’t bothered much by stronglight so they don’t need shades. If the light is too bright, I squint abit. If it isn’t, I don’t. So much forsunglasses.Snazzy cars have always beenpopular with guys, and I like look-ing at them. I’ve only had one ve-hicle that could be consideredsnazzy, and that was a blue andwhite mustang. I loved that carright up until the time I crashed itinto the back of a pickup thatdidn’t stop at a stop sign. Sincethen, my vehicles by necessityhave been more practical. Frankly,I prefer taller vehicles now whereI don’t feel like my rear is draggingon the ground. This would includemy red ranger pickup that suits mewell. It is somewhat “sporty” butnot the rage amongst the generalpublic. It does have four-wheeldrive which comes in extremelyhandy when you often travel un-paved roads such as the thirteenmiles of those we have getting totown from the ranch.Outward appearances, of course,can not compensate for a markedlack of goods on the inside. You canbe as cool as Tom Cruise or someother movie star and still not bemuch as far as a human being. Infact, those who spend a whole lot of time trying to look good can some-times be proud, callous, or shallowon the inside and much more con-cerned about having fun than ac-complishing anything of merit. Asa result, my definition of “cool” issomeone who is pleasant, kind andhelpful. If they are also nice to lookat, that’s a plus but not a necessity.In our church, we currently havea number of people who are gettingright up there in years—some evenin their nineties. They all keepthemselves looking fine, butthey’ve long since quit worryingabout being cool. They are, how-ever, very good people and simplyshine as far as I’m concerned.Their concerns tend to be moreabout how they can help otherfolks and be useful instead of whatothers can do for them. This sets agood example for the rest of us. Ihope we can measure up even if wedon’t wear sunglasses or drive asnazzy car. Measuring up would bereally cool.
