If you could give up all awareness and/or consciousness of what is "cool," would you?
In other words, does knowing which clothing or music or television or foods or habits is cool, and which is dorky or lame, improve your life at all?
[I ask because I have been out of sorts all day, because I am wearing a pair of jeans I got not too long ago. When I got them I thought they were reasonably cool, but upon wearing them I realize that they are a tiny bit too short for me. And that makes them definitively uncool. Knowing this just makes me feel bad, bad, bad. My life would be happier if I didn't know what length of jeans is cool. But I am not sure I am adult enough to wish to be completely oblivious to such things.]
