It's time to report on the responses my menfolk gave to my posting of the hat etiquette information.
Herb: No comment.
Nathaniel: I hope nobody I know reads your blog.
Am I discouraged? No!
I did put off ordering a hat, though. Last Sunday I talked to Herb's Schola buddy, Mickey, who is my style expert in everything. He does the flowers on the altar at church every week. He is going to help me choose a hat for Herb's birthday which is coming up on June 30. Generally, if Mickey recommends it, Herb says, "Sign me up". Mickey even said that he may get a hat, too. Maybe the Schola will lead the way in bringing hats back to the heads of American men. It would be fitting.
