Do you have a hat?

Hello:

Well, of course you have a hat, but is it funky?  I ask because I have this hat that I LOVE, and my wife HATES.  Like me, my hat is old and narley.  The cloth on the bill is in tatters.  But, I love it..  I wear it everywhere.  My wife buys me any number of very cool hats..  But, I don't wear 'em.  My hat is broken in just right. 

The only person who got the significance of my hat was the pizza maker at Costco..  The bill on her hat was ragged too..  I'm also getting carried away with the "significance" of my hat..  It's a hat, for crying out loud.  But, you have a piece of clothing just like my hat, don't you?

    I actually have one hat, but I've never worn it.

    It's a hat with a big, floppy brim and it's soft, so it doesn't need breaking in.  I just don't like wearing a hat. :)

    Hey, Z:

    I have a fisherman's hat, but boy do I look stupid in it..  Baseball caps are all I wear.

     If It's old and gnarly maybe it's time to get a new one, I usually throw away anything of mine that gets old and gnarly.

    Hello E:

    Yeah..  Some people absolutely do that..  My wife is one of those..  But, for me, old and gnarly is what I'm shooting for..  You know those shorts they sell with FAKE frayed edges.  Mine have frayed edges through wear and tear..  Ain't no false fraying over here.. 

    Clearly, somebody in some bigshot marketing firm thinks frayed edges are cool..  If they sold hats with frayed edges, I'd buy a dozen..

    I don't have any funky hats. I only really wear baseball caps. And in college I sometimes wore a fedora to make the world a whimsical place. :P

    I do have a few different types of hats for different types of weather. And I have a few different types of safety hats and one of them is a baseball hat that I use when I walk in the bush (the beak helps prevent getting poked in the eye from a tree branch). My favorite hat is my funky hat that I bought in Funky Town (Parksvilele BC).  It looks exactly like the hat Doctor Detroit wore in the Doctor Detroit movie and I only wear it once a year when I go to the annual Players Ball. Cheers!

    Shalom

    I have many hats, but I only wear two. Both retired Navy hats. I switch when one gets dirty.  Gnarly clothing: I have a pair of sweat pant that is threadbare and has small holes and bleach stains. I still wear it on a job.

    Hello again, shipmate:

    The best I can do to match that, is I bought a rendering of my ship and keep it on my mantel.  If I had a Navy hat, I'd wear it.  

    Have I thanked you lately for your service?  You know, I never got past radarman seaman, so being in the same room with you is awesome..


    I've got an old Winston tee shirt with holes all over it.. Yes, I still wear it..

    That's older than the water she sailed on.
