Are we back to denial or have we made it to resignation?
By the way, is it really hard to take yourself seriously when your wearing a hat with a pompom?
Pompoms on hats have a serious tradition:
Pom-poms form a conspicuous part of the uniform of French naval personnel, being sewn onto the crown of their round cap. Belgian sailors wear a light blue version....Here's a man in a Barlmoral hat. I am taking him totally seriously:
Roman Catholic clergy wear the biretta. The colour of its pom-pom denotes the wearer's rank....
In reference to Scottish Highland dress and Scottish military uniforms, the small pom-pon on the crown of such hats as the Balmoral, the Glengarry, and the Tam o' Shanter is called a "toorie."
That man in a hat had me so seriously mesmerized that I said to myself: Does Trump ever wear a hat? I am not kidding. I had to Google it... and then say "OH!" out loud, to the point where Meade, in the next room, said "What?"
We've elected a man in a hat. A rich man with weird hair put a working-class hat on his head and now readers of the NYT are freaking out and looking to fake a better mood with rainbows and smileys and hats with pompoms.
A baseball cap doesn't have a pompom, of course. It has a squatchee... or is it a squatcho?
For any youth out there who want to follow my lead, if you open a door, any door, there’s a little slot there in the doorway, and if you just stick the squatchee in there — or squatcho — and then if you pull, the button will come off. And then you have to reach inside the hat and take out the little metal piece that held the button in place. Once you got that out of the way, foul tips off the squatcho were no longer a problem. I mean, they still hit you on the head, but they didn’t drive that button down into your skull.So says Bob Brenly, the former baseball player, who seems to be the expert.
