How cool!

Nothing nicer than meeting someone cool, huh? But where does that term come from? Why do we use it so much? Here's our theory.

How we talk
¡Qué copado!

I propose an experiment: I chose a  WhatsApp group, any, and wrote in the search engine the word “ copado” or “copada ”. How many times does he show up? Even if we don't realize it, there are many terms that we use at a much higher frequency than we would imagine.

“ How cool !”, “ he's cool”, “he copes with me .” Phrases like that are part of our daily vocabulary. We don't say  cool ,  funny or  cool . We say  copado  or  copada  , as an adjective, and  I drink  , as a verbal. If something's really good, it's  cool . If a girl is very nice and funny,  she's cool .  If you catch up on a plan, you catch it.  And so.

But where does the expression come from? According to the  SAR , someone  is  crazy when they are “ excited or fascinated with something .” That's what we mean when we “get” something or someone. But, in Argentina, we also use it to describe the object or subject of our enthusiasm: that is why we say that that girl is “copada” or that a place “is copado”.

Anyway, there is nothing better than meeting hot people and, luckily, we have a lot here: those people who turn on in all, who give a good mood to any situation and radiate an energy that makes us feel like having them around.
