It's a what?

My husband’s company is doing the electrical work for the remodeling of a local lobster place, and he came home with the most bizarre thing the other day. (Actually, if you frequent seafood places, it might not seem bizarre, but we’re not seafood eaters, so we’d never seen one.)

You would think he brought the short kid home a Benz.

What is it? After the jump.

He actually brought home two, but the tall kid comes out swinging if you try to get one anywhere near his head. The short kid, though, refuses to take his off.

    Life Lesson # 1345: If your husband is determined to put an accordion-style paper hat on your head to make your children laugh, don’t struggle. I have about 20% less hair than I did before the :censor: lobster hat came to live with us.

    I’d send you one, but it would take me forever to pick my hair out of it.

    Especially how I feel about my WIP.
