I found the hat. Ever just go crazy for some item that is meaningless to everyone else but hits you just right. Nonsensical yet for some reason touches you somewhere you just can’t explain.
For me it was this hat. Then I thought I lost it. Tonight it was found. Okay…I know not earth shattering but sometimes you just need that comfort thing…or comfort food…or comfortable shirt…or …well you get the picture. I am sure you have that one thing that just makes you feel good at a stressful time.
Back to the hat. 278 is printed on the front in red numbers. The hat is racing green and on the side is the signature of Steve McQueen.
278 was the number on his bike he was racing. And of course Steve McQueen is ,well, Steve McQueen. The Great Escape. The Thomas Crown Affair . Bullitt. So all seems right now with the world. What does it for you? What gives you the excuse to smile and feel all will be fine. Sometimes it just may be recapturing a memory that comes alive in…well, tonight…a hat.
