Top 10 Reasons to Wear Hats (especially while you're reading)
Reading in a public place? Have your head buried in The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton and trying to figure out how to pronounce hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia while exposing that bald spot? That goes for you too, ladies. Wear a hat!
Forget the bald spot - be proud of it! Draw a face on it or frame it with a Fascinator! But on the days when your hair is just atrocious and you don't want to be seen reading a classic with your hair in tangles, adding a wonderful cap or even a top hat to your head takes all the attention away from your mat.
School should start with a bag of books and a thinking cap. It would be more fun AND thinking caps work. If you don't believe me, put on a stocking cap, call it your thinking cap and read a bit of Tilda Pinkerton. You'll comprehend the rare and obscure words quicker.
There was a time when men and women would not be caught dead without a hat. Hats were fashionable items that accentuated wonderfully coiffed hairdos, matched elegant coats, and made the entire ensemble simply gorgeous. Do that!
Reading a book about a french fish? Wear a beret and see how well you understand his rants through his bubbles.
Reading at a bus stop? Can't put the book down while swaying in your hammock, but the wind has picked up? Wearing a hat can prevent hypothermia.
Do you know those women who wear sweaters to match every holiday? The kind you cross your fingers you will not get for Christmas? Don't let them have all the fun with yarn and sequins - make an Easter Bonnet. Update the Santa Hat. Create a Valentine's Day hat for singles - complete with flashing lights.
Do you know what a Fascinator hat is? You'd look great in one. Re-watch the Royal Wedding - you'll see plenty of them. If you wear a Fascinator to match the cover of the book you're reading - it makes the whole experience much more delicious, dainty, and daring - especially if you wear it in Starbucks. Come on. I dare you.
Remember old black and white movies and the way the stars looked so elegant? Well, go rent some! With a hat tilted down ever so slightly on your forehead, casting that little shadow as you read that thriller - you are oh so sexy and mysterious.
Just like a thinking cap helps you think (it does, try it), wearing a hat while you read gets you into the characters of the book. Whenever Tilda Pinkerton gives anyone a hat, they are suddenly able to do whatever it is they've dreamed of doing. They can dance, sing, write and paint - even invent things that make the world a better place.
