Jimmy wrote this joke and it reminded me of this really bad habit I have where I say "that's kinda cool" all the time. I try to catch myself, but it just comes out. Somebody once called my shirt "kinda cool," and I obsessed over if my shirt was cool or not cool the entire day. I still wonder if that shirt was cool. It's now with Goodwill hopefully making somebody else feel cool.
Technically, you really shouldn't care what other people think, but that doesn't mean you can turn your obsessive thoughts off once the message is sent.
