I wrote a blog on some of the hats I have a while ago. I have, begrudgingly, taken to wearing a wide brimmed hat any time I am outside. I have found that it leads to less problems with my face, and I don't get a sunburned nose quite as badly.
A friend of mine said something about her daughter, but it fits me as well. If I were to go outside without sunscreen, (and a hat), I would burst into flame.
Possibly not literally, but I think I am just shy of being allergic to the sun. Hence the hat. It is funny, though, I have found that I wear a felt hat most of the time now, and get compliments and comments on it. This is my model, Buc the cat...
|I hope I look a little better in it than he does...|
I was putting some groceries in my rig, and Mom was in already, when this gal walks up and compliments me on my hat and shirt.
I thank her, then she pipes up, sooo, you have any ganja?
I snort, and tell her no, but it's hot out , (it was about 90 or so at the time), would she like some water? She said sure, I gave her a little extra for her boyfriend and dog, and then got in. As they were walking off, Mom inquired about what she'd asked about.
"She just wanted to know if I had pot."
"Yeah. Isn't the first time I've been asked."
I told her with my outfit, it sort of encouraged discussion of recreational herbs... She then said I should have told them about my volunteer job with the Sheriff's Office.
My first thought about that would be, I don't want someone wetting themselves behind my rig!
