Okay, so I am trying to follow the rule to always post something within three days of the your last post. I was told by a wise blogger, that if you don’t, people stop reading. Can I tell you how extremely hard that is, especially when technology is extremely displeased with you at the moment?
That’s right folks! I must of angered the techno Gods during Critique week, because I swear they have smote (smitted?) my laptop. It’s now at a repair shop and I am sitting at a terminal in FedEx Kinkos, who I am not very happy with, but that’s another story.
Anyhoo, the topic today is pretty interesting. I kinda have a collector’s personality, but i’m not very commited to it. It just kinda happens. For those of you who know me, I have one collection that I prize over them all and that’s my collection of visors. I don’t really know when this one started, because I’ve never been a hat wearer. I just remember one day putting on a visor, looking in a mirror and saying, “Damn, I look pretty good!”
Since that day, I have gathered a collection of 20 (maybe a little bit more) visors. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors and are from all over the world literally. Each one has a specific story, too. Some are really ratty from continous wear and tear; others are as pristine as the day I bought them. There’s no rhyme or reason to why I wear some and others I don’t. It mostly has to do with whether I have something that matches the visor or not.
I’d almost forgotten how much a part of my personality these “half hats” had become, when my friend Jamen remarked that he didn’t realize I had hair. He’s always seen me with a visor on pretty much and when I didn’t rock one, he was very surprised. Come to think of it, it’s been a while since I actually donned one. Maybe I’m outgrowing the “wearing” phase, even though the next vaca I take, I’m definitely purchasing another one to add to my collection.
So, I’m interested to know of other collections out there. If you got you’ve got a pretty good one going let me know about it.
