What kind of hat do you have? A cowboy hat, a baseball cap, a wide-brimmed Mariachi hat or what?
  • Profile picture of the author MissTerraK
    I have a pink cowboy hat (not my virtual one I used to wear here, but a real one) and a pink fedora.

    I also have a jean IHRA baseball cap.

    I gave up cowboy hats when I quit riding horses. I've got a leather baseball cap and a couple cloth ones. I've got a red fedora I used to wear when I played guitar and sang live. And, of course, I've got this halo, but I guess that's not really a hat.

    The only hat I have is a part of my pimp costume. It looks like this one besides it's a little bit higher:

    I don't have a hat. Some little guy ran by with a cup of tea and a white rabbit and he stole my hat.

    I might just go get it back though. Um -- which pill is it that makes you smaller?

        I've got so many I could wear a different hat everyday for at least 6 months
        I usually wear my News 9 baseball cap when I'm working outdoors. When riding it's do-rags (I know they're not hats). If I'm out in the car or visiting I wear a black Ivy cap and on those days I just want to make people nervous I wear my hemp Afghan Freedom Fighters cap.
        I also have an old beat up Fedora that years ago one of my bosses called the ugliest hat he had ever see.

    Ball caps for me...all kinds. Companies, rock bands, and of course, the infamous Roll Tide.

    In fact, I put on my hat before I put on my shoes. I guess you could say, I get dressed from the top down...

  • Trivia for the day:
    Hatta, the Hatter is a fictional character in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the story's sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. He is often referred to as the Mad Hatter, though this term was never used by Carroll. The phrase "mad as a hatter" pre-dates Carroll's works and the characters the Hatter and the March Hare are initially referred to as "both mad" by the Cheshire Cat, with both first appearing in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, in the seventh chapter titled "A Mad Tea-Party".

    Although the name "Mad Hatter" was clearly done and inspired by the phrase "as mad as a hatter", there is some uncertainty as to the origins of this phrase. Mercury was used in the process of curing felt used in some hats, making it impossible for hatters to avoid inhaling the mercury fumes given off during the hat making process; hatters and mill workers thus often suffered mercury poisoning, causing neurological damage, including confused speech and distorted vision. Hat making was the main trade in Stockport, near where Carroll grew up, and it was not unusual then for hatters to appear disturbed or confused; many died early as a result of mercury poisoning. However, the Hatter does not exhibit the symptoms of mercury poisoning, which include "excessive timidity, diffidence, increasing shyness, loss of self-confidence, anxiety, and a desire to remain unobserved and unobtrusive.

    Hats ... I have news paper boy hat, baseball hat, a regular cap, and a sun visor. All of them have sentimental value, that's why I keep them hanging, not using it very often.

    I wear all kinds of figurative and literal hats. It depends. I don't always feel up to tackling my unruly mane, so hats are my best friends.

    I have a nice assortment of church lady hats. My parents are from Alabama and I was taught that women wore dresses and hats to church. So even though I don't go to church much, I still love my church hats.

    I also wear fedoras, skull caps, baseball caps etc. As long as it matches my clothes, I'll wear it.

      That's quite a hat collection! I didn't even think of the figurative meaning of hats when I posted my kind of off-the-wall question. My toddler loves trying different hats on (he even puts things on his head that wouldn't ordinarily be hats) and I've joked that he's a man of many hats. My late father had a huge hat collection, just about everything under the sun, Stetsons, English caps, sombreros, berets, straw hats, top hats. He also wore many hats figuratively as well, lol.

      I actually have a collection of hats including a tricorn, safari hat, old military hats, a couple of fedoras and a vintage "Top Gun" trucker cap.

      The weird part? I don't wear any of them
