nothing like noticing those peeps which define a sense of cool. never without anything less than a sense of Self, coupled with confidence and a twinge of self-effacement.
you know the friend in your circles who fit the bill, and they will always have the "it" quality about them. neither rain nor sleet nor snow will diminish their particular quality of light.
whether outwardly robust or discreetly, this person will always inhabit and reside at the edges of coolness. and they do not require entirely your approval or understanding.
the best part about notingcing this quality in your friends, is that perhaps you are overlooking yourself, and they all think that you are the cool kid. better believe it.
