Hat

I love hats. It's a thing. I'm not sure when it started, or why, but it did, and so it is.

I've been on the hunt for a new hat for months. I retired my oldest and most beloved hat in 2007, and since then, there's been a gaping hole in my heart and an empty nob in my dresser. This was not OK.

But hats are not something to be purchased too rashly. A hat and its bearer have to connect on an emotional and spiritual level. In many respects, the hat chooses the head. Suffice it to say, it's a complicated process.

However, my search is over. Today, in an U.S. Army surplus store, I found a camo cap, made to military standard. I tried it on, and it was good, and now, it is mine.

I LOVE HATS TOO. In case you didn't notice that I'm usually wearing one. And backwards.

don't ever lose your love of hats!!! in HS I was girl with visor (usually Yankees) and it was gross, and nasty, and I think I wore it somewhat during freshman year too. after a while, for whatever reason, I stopped, and I can't go back, but I want to be back to being girl with visor. I'm working on it since I got a free Miller Lite visor the other day. rock the unkempt hair!

I remember your visor, Diana! You looked good in it, too. =)

I'm planning on visiting Yankee/New Yankee stadium every year and buying a hat for the season. Hopefully one day I'll have a collection worthy of my den.
