    cool

    Hi everybody,
    I'm translating a book. Girls having a band etc.
    I'll quote the passage:
    We are playing a gig next month. On Halloween actually.
    What? - we screamed in unison, which was pretty cool, really.
    In this case, the meaning is the idiomatic one (the girl who's writing her diary finds the way they spoke in unison pretty cool), right??
    thanks a lot

    Re: cool

    Yes, because they spoke in unison ("which was pretty cool" immediately follows the screaming incident).
