Can you tell what that is in the picture?
Why, it's a horse hat. Or more specifically, a visor with a horse's head on it. And why do I have it? The spouse brought it home from a horse show Saturday. If I was supposed to wear it, well, that ain't gonna happen. Who on earth would walk around with a horse on their head? Wouldn't that sort of make you look like a horse's ass?
I tried putting it on the dog so I could snap a picture, but she wasn't having it. She bucked it off in a flash, barked at it, and took off running with it in her mouth. I figured I'd better not try again or she'd get so offended she might pack up and run away from home.
I suppose if I ever sign up with one of those cyber dating services, I could wear it on first dates. It might be reasonably interesting to check out the reactions, don't you think? I wonder what kind of guy would carry on a conversation, perhaps consume a whole meal, without ever questioning the unspeakable thing on my head? Soul of discretion, you think, or so weird I'd better not stay through dessert?
