That is totally book

Spoke to a mate the other day. Apparently the "kids on the street" have now started saying that things are "book" rather than "cool" as book normally comes up on predictive text when trying to say cool on a mobile phone.

Not sure if I kinda like that or not. I suppose it is a 'growth of the language' thing, and is almost like a pun. I think I do like it on reflection.

I certainly do say cool far too much. Not quite sure what else to say really, and I don't generally fit the 70s hangover surfer dude (apart from the hangover bit, that's often true. see what I did there!!). I do get odd looks every now and again if I say cool in a business meeting. Probably get even weirder looks if I start saying book though.


  • to be fair, the odd looks may have nothing to do with what you're saying...
