So, in an effort to better protect myself from the sun, I bought a new pair of sunglasses and a straw hat today. Feeling that the traditional straw hats were a bit bland, I opted for the straw cowboy hat.
Husband: Um, well, I think that hat conveys a certain kind of person in a certain time period...
Wife: Katherine in 2009?
I don't think that's what he was going for. I still think it's cute and am contemplating disregarding the input. Of course, the reason I had to buy new sunglasses is because I disregarded the input last time when I really shouldn't have. They were excessively large men's aviator glasses, also conveying a certain kind of person (a man) in a certain time period (the seventies). I caved into the siren call of 75% off clearance.
So maybe I should exchange the straw cowboy hat for a traditional floppy.
