Let's Be Cool

Monday, April 1, 2013

Being cool is a compliment. It has nothing to do with temperature and everything to do with being stylish, fashionable, impressive, or excellent. A cool person is free from anxiety and excitement.

Sometimes cool phrasal verbs are connected to temperature, literally or metaphorically. When you are hot from the sun or perhaps after working out (exercising) you need to cool off or cool down, to become less hot.
Example: We all jumped in the pool to cool off.

If you become angry or emotional from an argument, you also need to cool off or cool down, to relax or reduce your anger.
Example: Andrea seems very angry so I will wait until he cools down before calling him.
Example: When Daniele is angry, I let him talk until he cools off.

Staying cool has many benefits.
