The Hunt for a Beanie
Apparently our heads are like open skylights in a building on fire; all the heat rises up and escapes right through them, possibly straight out of our ears as though we’re human tea kettles. But according to the cold weather grandmother contingent, you can trick the heat from leaving by trapping it with a hat.
While cool hats are one thing, and Crazy-Hat-Lady-hats another, if my body is a freezing temple and my head its wide open chimney, then I need something substantial to shove it all back in. Something cozy. I need a beanie. And help deciding on one.
Will I look like Steve Zissou if I go with this men’s red one?
Or am I better off going with something muted, and fuzzy?
Do I want one with a pom pom so I feel festive and wintry?
Or should I follow the KISS Principle, aka “Keep It Simple, Stupid,” and go with classic, simple, and black?
You tell me, because I can’t keep stealing my roommate’s.
