Hats! Hats For Sale! 50 Cents a Hat!

It is 34 degrees this morning on the island of Manhattan. I can see my breath clearly: and not just because I had scampi last night. This morning I exclaimed "It's colder than a witch's teet!" and Cboy's ears perked right up, and all of a sudden I found my self trying to explain what a teet was... and the reason we were ten minutes late for school is that I had a hard time convincing The Banana that COWS DO NOT PEE MILK.

While it pains me to put away my glamerous plastic hair clippy things for the season, it is time to make one of the most important purchases of the season: A HAT.

Like most New Yorkers, this is what I wore LAST YEAR:






But I grew tired of being mistaken for a wayward sherpa. I need something different this year.
Perhaps I should go whimsical..



But then everytime I bump into someone on the street and they ask me how I'm doing, I'm going have to say "Grrrrrrrrrr-reat" and that could get pretty old pretty fast. Maybe I should go for warmth..


But I kind of feel like this hat screams : My other car is a wooden sleigh pulled by six clydesdales. Better suited for someone named Karina or Anastasia. Speaking of which, do you think this hat would make me look like a socialist?

I wouldn't mind a hat that does something helpful. For instance this one:

I believe if you tell it all your worries, it solves them overnight. And that got me thinking...is it possible to find a hat that solves ALL your problems? Why yes... indeed it is:

Now-if they could only invent the matching winter coat.

remember that scene in a Christmas story with the weird kid who kept saying "I LIKE SANTA" in a kind of demented voice? And he was wearing a leather and lamb bomberhat with goggles? THAT is the hap you need.

Manhattan - it sounds so exciting. That last mast - it kind of scared me.

tjames said...

Oh that last one scared me a little and I snorted Diet Pepsi out my nose!

Does the last one come in Brunette? If so, I'm TOTALLY in! ♥

vinomom said...

Where do I get one of those?? I'd love to show up to my daughters soccer game this weekend wearing it.

sheila said...

I think the whole family should get the last one. Then wander Central Park & freak people out!!

BTW-I have a box of hats, and I live in TX. I think it's because I will try anything to avoid having to do my hair in the mornings. Berets are the best.

My hat looks just like your sherpa hat but in brighter colors... with glovtens to match. I love it a lot and was planning on sticking with it for another year but I don't know... that last one is darn tempting.

Debbie said...

Oh my word. That last one has done it for me! Excellent.

No Zakary, cows don't pee milk. But they do poo milk chocolate.

Jennifer said...

That last one is so effed up I can't stand it.

Spatula said...

Think you should go with something red - you know in the xmas type way ... the last one - like many others makes we want to look for the crazy clown or chuckie the murdering doll - too freaky by far - even for you dear one - le xoxo

I don't do hats. I'd rather lose my ears to frost bite than have "hat hair". LOL. Although with that last one, no one would have to see "hat hair". Eeeek!

Sabrae said...

I would seriously avoid you if I saw you in that last hat!!! But proabably poke fun at you in the others! :)

Bj in Dallas said...

that hat looks like

"Hannibal Lechter- The Early Years"

KLS said...

I'd go with the fur and get some big fluffy furry boots to match!

Chandra said...

I would love nothing more then to send my kids to school in hats like the last one; as if they weren't messed enough. They would be so popular! LOL!

What a great post!

I didn't know you could actually knit a clown. I think the kit should include a meat cleaver. It would complete the look.

Oh my!
