A new hat

  • 23rd Feb, 2006 at 4:08 PM

I lost my hat in San Francisco.

I've gone for a couple of days without one, but my head feels funny. So I went on a quest to get a new one.

I went to the Bay, where I originally got my hat, but they were sold out.

I went to a hatter on Mount Royal, but they were closed. Curiously, their hours and sign both claimed that they were open.

I then went to Ste-Catherine, where I remembered there was a hatter. Unfortunately, I walked east instead of west.

Fortunately, I didn't give up hope. So I found Henri-Henri and picked out a cap that resembles the one I lost.

I think I shall have to return to buy myself a bowler.

What kind of hat did you lose?

A black golf cap.

With any luck, it will return to me by post.

This reminds me of the time I went to the post office with a pair of pants and uncermoniously requested to post them to Thunder Bay. The clerk was non-plussed.

Incidentally, I like your choice in headgear. I always found it regrettable that hats (and, perhaps coincidentally, well-maintained facial hair) have fallen far out of fashion.

It looks like well-maintained facial hair is coming back into fashion, which is an encouraging sign.

However, the derth of hats is still rather troublesome. They're very attractive as well as practical.

I seem to recall recently reading a hypothesis that facial hair has failed to make a comeback because popular culture has demonized the fellow with the moustache/beard as the bad guy.

It made no comment on hats, though. You and I are in perfect agreement on the matter.

Incidentally, I like the word 'nonplussed'; I think since it's a word 'plussed' should be too.

Such a thing would surely leave me feeling gruntled.

Are you using the archaic form of gruntled? Or the neologism? Because they're complete opposites.

Amusingly, I don't think it matters.

You must be about the luckiest man in the world to have gotten lost looking for a hat store, only to have stumbled across Henri & Henri. It's like getting lost looking for a museum and accidentally discovering the Louvre.

I should think so! One day, I will go to Paris and do just that.

Does Henri-Henri only make men's hats or are they also a milliner ?

ps. I told you that you needed to buy a bowler to go with your umbrella. :)
sfllaw
23rd Feb, 2006 22:36 (UTC)
Yes. I think I might even get another umbrella and a walking stick while I'm there.

I only saw men's hats on display.

But that's cheating, because you already know it's there and awesome.

But I don't know where it is! It would be an adventure, I think.

Bowler hats are hot.
sfllaw
23rd Feb, 2006 21:39 (UTC)
Yes they are.

I've decided to avoid purchasing clothing that isn't.

hm, I wonder what you'd look like in a hat.

*pondering*

Dashing.

I assure you.
