So today my wife, Janice, and I are on vacation and
strolling through the shops at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. It was mid-afternoon
and we decided to stop at the Sweet Surrender Café and get two sixteen ounce containers
of Kemosabe Lite iced french vanilla diet coffee.
“Boy is this French vanilla diet coffee ever good,” Janice
stated as we exited the café and began our stroll down the mall stopping here
and there to window shop.
“I told you you would enjoy the french vanilla,” I stated to
Janice as we stopped in front of the “If The Hat Fits” store.
“What an interesting store,” Janice replied as we studied
the fedora’s, solar weave boonie, derby, porkpie, pillbox, fisherman and big brim
floppy hats on display in the store’s window. “Let’s go in.”
Within minutes of entering the store Janice had made her way
to the woman’s hat section and I to the men’s section. “How does this top hat
look on me?” I called out to Janice referring to the black Lincoln style top
hat I had on my head.
“That’s pretty cool, but it not practical,” she replied
after she had taken a sip from her container of iced french vanilla diet
Several minutes passed as Janice and I walked around the
store sipping our diet coffee while we observed various styles of western,
Aussie, safari cadet, trooper, and hamburg hats. The store even carried a large
variety of various time period hats.
“Hey Ronnie,” Janice called out to me as I was looking at a
bowler hat. “What do you think of this hat?” She asked referring to the wool
cioche wine colored hat with a grey flower she had on her head.
“I love it, Janice. It’s so you.”
“I don’t know. It’s a toss-up between this hat and creamy
colored round crown wool hat. Here, Ronnie,” she stated. “Hold my container of
iced diet coffee while I try on the crown hat.”
No sooner had I had the creamy colored round crown hat on
did Ronnie state, “I don’t know Janice, they both look good on you. Let’s each
buy one of these cool hats had have some fun while we are in Vegas. Besides we
can always use them at Halloween.”
To make a long story short Janice bought the wine colored
wool cioche hat with the grey flower and I bought an Indiana Jones style hat.
For the next three days we walked around Vegas with our hats and got many
smiles from passerby’s.
