Why Oh So Cool Lisa
Sunday, March 05, 2017
I had this friend, her name was Carmella. We were teens at the time and she had just become an aunt. She taught her nephew these whole phrases like, "I am blessed beyond belief," and Aunt Carmella is my favorite Aunt.". It was so adorable to hear a little one chant these phrases when prompted by her presence or name.
Now move a decade or so into the future. I was working at a preschool. One of the parents came in and commented that I was cool for doing something. Playing around she said, "So cool," and then "Oh So cool Miss Lisa". Now, unknown to me, a little boy (named Ben) was listening to everything.
Later that day, Ben got caught disobeying and I asked him why I shouldn't have him sit in in time out for it. He responded, "Because you are oh so cool Miss Lisa.". Needless to say, that 3yr old did not go to time out at that time!
So, I taught my nieces and nephews to say, "Oh so cool Aunt Lisa," and my niece added "WhooHoo" to the phrase! Well, the kids grew up and 'Oh So Cool Lisa' stuck.
