It’s only Dec. 4, and I’ve already lost my hat. It was a cute green hat I bought on the cheap from REI Outlet. I lost it somewhere between the office and the coffee shop in Adams Morgan.
Last January, I lost a blue hat I bought on the cheap from REI Outlet. I lost that one somewhere between Pizza Paradiso in Georgetown and the movie theater when I went to see Juno for the second time.
I’m thinking maybe I should not buy another hat from REI Outlet, maybe I should buy an expensive hat (where do they sell expensive hats?) But until then, I’ll hold out hope that maybe I’ll find my two hats chilling out somewhere together, along with the three umbrellas, two books of stamps and 26 hair ties I’ve lost this year.
