Day 1052: The coolest

I think my readers are the coolest.

Recently, two of them made the coolest comments:

Hey — you seem like a cool cat! That line of work must be very challenging. I admire your consistent, long-running posts, too 🙂 — cmblackwood

Miles Davis for me. He was so cool, if he was alive today global warming wouldn’t be a problem! — Paul S.

Also,  fellow WordPresser  coffeegrounded did the coolest thing: she honored me with the coolest award (even though I don’t do anything with cool WordPress awards besides appreciating them).

What’s the coolest thing somebody has done for you, lately?

I’m trying to decide what my coolest activity might be, today:

  1. Individual therapy, where I work.
  2. Group therapy, which is the coolest therapy (I believe) because “the more the merrier.”
  3. Getting fitted for a dental device for my sleep apnea, which will be much cooler ( I hope) than the C-Pap and Bi-Pap machines I’ve been using through some coolest and warmest months.
  4. Getting my teeth cleaned, pre-medicating with some cool oral antibiotics rather than the intravenous antibiotics I’ve had to use over many of the coolest years around here, in Massachusetts.
  5. Attending a board meeting of one of the coolest professional organizations of group therapists.

Which of these photos from yesterday is the coolest?

Personally, I think it’s the coolest to challenge habitual assumptions and ways of thinking — that’s why I wrote that prescription.

Which of these cool songs is the coolest, to you?

I think having several choices is the coolest.

Coolest thanks to cmblackwood, Paul S., coffeegrounded, Gwen Stefani, Alesso, West Side Story,  all those who help make my life the coolest, and  you — of course! — for being here, now (which is the coolest place to be).

  1. Love the Gwen Stefani song.

  2. Now this is a cool post Ann! I love the word – cool things make us appreciate and smile. That means you are one of the coolest people I know 😎

  3. The coolest thing ever is a FB group I belong to where adults with the same condition support each other without being judgemental. Times might become hard for some of us there in the future, but I know these cool people will always be there for me and listen non-judgmentally.

    • You are the coolest, Vicki. I appreciate that cool group, too, for people with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (like cool you and cool me). And, I’m so glad I got to meet you in one of the coolest cities in the world — Edinburgh, Scotland.

  4. I think seeing you and Yaz together like that is the coolest, Ann!

  6. Cool is a great song. I hate going to the dentist.

  7. You’re so cool you could be used to store meat. You’re so hip you can’t see over your pelvis. I’m lifting lines from The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy which some people think is the opposite of cool, but then you can’t cool all the people all the time.

  8. I love the Gwen song, which drew me into the post. But I think your attitude is the coolest. How you blog daily, practice therapy, and manage your health challenges with grace and without victimhood.

    Very Very Cool 😉

  9. I like the Gwen Stefani video – surprisingly. Coolio!!!!!!!
    Have a super-duper day Ann!!!!!!

  10. I knew you were cool from the first time I sat virtually and read your post. My motto for you,”Feeling down? Go visit Ann.” It works! You and your group of followers make for a beautiful garden of Hope.


  11. Cool Rx!

  12. This blog IS the coolest! I love your photos of shadows Ann.

  13. Cool post!

    And I confess I’m partial to the cool Miss Stefani. How in the world does she not age?! Too cool to get older, I suppose, lol. 🙂

  14. West Side Story for me
