Young Ladrinka: Not wonderful, cool. But not cool cool, cool.

Marinka: What is cool cool?

Young Ladrinka: You know, constipated, overweighted, out-of-style loser.

Marinka: What?

Young Ladrinka: Constipated, overweighted, out-of-style loser.

Marinka: What?

Young Ladrinka: Constipated, overweighted, out-of-style loser.

Marinka: What?

Young Ladrinka: Are you going to keep saying what?

Marinka: What?

Ha! I’ve never heard that before. My daughter did say, Mom, do you know what ADIDAS stands for? I held my breath. “All day I dream about soccer.” Phew. That’s not what we used to say.

“cool cool” is “constipated, overweighted, out-of-style loser”? I’m as lost as you were.

I’m sorry that I confused everyone!

Young Ladrinka meant that the letters stood for the C(onstipated) O(verweighted; not overweight, mind you! O(ut of style!) L(oser!)

What could be simpler?

groan.

Oh what fresh hell is this?
Is he implying you know LOTS of ‘cool’ people because you BLOG? I am offended.
