My thoughts on: Hats

The topic of hats comes from Joel.

I don't have too many thoughts on hats. But I do have some. It is a continuing mission of mine to be a hat person. The problem used to be that I had to wear glasses and the hat would push down on them and give me a headache. Now that I have contacts again I can wear hats again if they aren't too tight around my brain. And I'm excited, for I love hats. I love them for many reasons. One of them is so I can hide from people when I'm out and about. Sometimes when you're around a lot of people a lot of the time, you need your own special place to go. And behind the brim of my hat can be a very special place indeed. My most recent hat purchase is this. I wear it as I think about hats.



One more thought: One of my favorite things, when I'm riding the bus Sunday mornings, is seeing all these church-going ladies wearing their fancy Sunday dresses with outrageous Sunday hats. It delights me. Better still is on Easter Sunday. Oh man. Fuschia, feathers, beads, veils. It is a sight, and one that pleases me immensely.

I really liked your post, especially the comment about hats hurting when you wear glasses. I definitely know what your talking about.

I love wearing baseball hats. My dad teased me that I wouldn't be able to go my whole mission without my Mariners hat (I proved him wrong, though). :0)

I too know the shame of wearing glasses and a hat. It simply doesn't work.
