Another funny post! Jon, it’s crazy relatable — I don’t know what it makes me, then. I’ve never been cool, not with an accent that now sounds more like an odd Irish lisp (I’m a little bit proud of it, & when silly Americans ask where I’m from, I loudly say: County Donegal, Donegal City, Ireland. Ha ha ha! I can fool most folks except the Irish!) In any case, I want a motorcycle jacket, & am jealous. I’ve never even ridden a motorcycle, it is, however, an epitome of cool, to me.
