I wear a baseball cap a lot. Usually a white baseball cap. This is mostly to cover up hair I do not really want to mess with — which happens more often than it should probably. White basball caps are cute but after a while they get tarnished by wear and they are never the same if you wash them in a washer so I just buy a new one when the old one gets too tarnished to be okay for polite society. Which is what I did a week ago when the old baseball cap was just too shabby to wear any more. And I have been happily trotting about in my new sparkley white baseball cap not thinking much about it till I go to the Academy yesterday to the Nicholl lunch and am chatting with people and after about an hour Joan [Joan is Greg Beal’s Nicholl left hand] who keeps eyeing my cap finally says, Max, do you know the price tag of your hat is on the brim?
And it is. I have never even noticed. But there on the brim of my hat is a sticky price tag. Which has been there at least a week, ever since I bought the hat, every single time I wore it.
