The Way You Wear Your Hat

While San Geraldo and I were having our coffee at Café Manila this morning, Darren pulled up on his motorcycle and joined us.

As Darren removed his helmet, San Geraldo grabbed it and exclaimed, "That's what I need... a helmecycle hatlet!"

It took a while to get the words out correctly — what with all the laughing. But finally, after San Geraldo had modeled Darren's helmecycle hatlet, I then tried it on for size.

Darren told me even though it was too small for San Geraldo it had still looked better on him. I said I was sure it did because "I don't look good in hats."

HATLETED HERALDO HAD HEATHER HYSTERICAL.

However, I have one hat right now that I do like. I wear it on rainy days, so I don't have to carry an umbrella. Most people I know here call it my "Frank Sinatra hat." They think it makes me look like a New York gangster.

In response to my comment about how I look in hats, Darren tried to tell me that my Frank Sinatra hat suits me.

He said, "Well your Franksahatra not suits you."

San Geraldo then headed off for his Spanish class. Maybe next week he and Darren can start working on their English.


I was never a big Frank Sinatra fan, so I hope you enjoy this version of the song:

      I think Monheit and Pizzarelli are both amazing!

  3. Yes this is a much better version for me too.
    I like your hat Mitch...looks good on you and very NYC.
    San Geraldo looks happy in his! Great shot!

      Notice I didn't share a photo of me in the helmecycle hatlet. I can only imagine what it looked like!

  4. Your hat is called a TRILBY, I got one too in Rome years ago and I wear it all the time.
    It has to be worn slightly at an angle like Frank S. did. Very stylish.

      The trilby is the perfect size and shape for me. I've got one for summer, too. I'd buy more, but I lost the first two I bought in Sevilla.

  5. Love this version of the song almost as much as the sight of you in your trilby.

    Hmmm, wonder if San Geraldo and I might be related; I've been known to utter things like 'scrumbled pampkins' and 'britten's kitches' a time or three...

      I remember you talking about scrumbled pampkins. San Geraldo's odd language doesn't always make quite this much sense.

  6. You two are stylish and elegant--you for your head gear and Heraldo for his spoonerisms!

      San Geraldo's spoonerisms are comical. But, usually, he doesn't even make us much sense as that!

  7. It does suit you, Old Blue Eyes!

      I don't think there are many styles of hats that look good on my. My face is too narrow. But I do like this. My other problem with hats is, once my hairline started receding, I was afraid people would think I was trying to hide the fact that I was going bald. OR... that they would be disappointed when I took off the hat! (Because I just know that's all anyone is waiting for.)
