I Could Say Hi

I'm visiting Los Angeles starting tomorrow.  I'm really excited, but I'm also paralyzed by nerves.

Here's the problem: When you hop off the plane at LAX as Miley Cyrus is wont to do, do they check for coolness?

Because I'm pretty sure I will fail any LA coolness test.   I googled about how to be cool in LA, but I can't find any definitive tips beyond getting paid for your Instagram.  Also, I've heard that women of a certain age (my age) are eschewed by Hollywood.  I learned this by reading articles about people who used to be cool, but now because they are in their mid-to-late 30s, they are no longer cool.

I did find an article about things I can wear to appear cooler than I am.  These include beanies and lace/sheer clothing.  Also leggings at all times.  So, basically, no.

It's safe to say I'm counting on the unconditional love of my sibling and his fab wife to make up for my Minneapolis mediocrity.  Everything will be okay.

My sister-in-law is living in LA for four months. She seems to fit in by riding a cool looking bike with no helmet. And sunglasses. She wears those. Oh, and Keds.

I wanted to tell you that in all your photos you look infinitely cooler than I would ever hope to be. So, there's that. You looked fab.
