Animal’s Five Rules of Cool

  • LIVE LOUD!!!! – Anything worth doing is worth doing at high-decibel – sing, express your opinion, or wear a really loud sports coat – let people know who you are and where you’re headed.
  • EAT NOW! –  Choose not to “stay hungry” in life – don’t put off rewards and gratification. Devour life –  literally.
  • FRIENDS! – Good friends watch your back, take care of you, and always follow your beat – make sure your life is filled with good friends.
  • ROMANCE! – Choose a more subtle approach to finding love – shouting “WOMAN! WOMAN!” only works for some.
  • NICE BUNNY! – Find what makes you feel safe – a quiet space, a  “Nice Bunny,”  soaking in pond scum like Kermit,  or wearing tapioca-filled tap shoes like Gonzo.  Whatever it is, embrace your bliss; just don’t squeeze too hard.
