about watch caps while I read. I didn't know until now that a watch cap is a knit cap similar to those worn by seamen while on watch.
At this moment, I'm feeling annoyed. Not just about hats. About life in general. During my lunch break, I had a tense phone call with my dad about racism in America. I know better than to talk to my dad about this, but I did it again and now I'm in a bad mood. If one person could walk in to this coffee shop with an interesting hat, I swear I would pull out of it and write for the rest of the afternoon in a spirit of good cheer. I love my dad and I need to remember to change topics before tension rises. Maybe I'll ask my dad whether he would prefer a fedora or a cowboy hat next time a topic from the news comes up in our chats. He's not much of a hat guy, but a focus on a neutral topic could be a game changer for both of us.
