I took this cellphone camera shot of the Short Kid on his way to school yesterday morning:
How do you make wearing a fake fur-lined, ear-flapped drunken Russian hat even more special? Wear it backwards! When I tell him he looks ridiculous, he lets me know in no uncertain terms he doesn’t care.
He says that, worn backwards, the fur-lined brim tucks under his collar, keeping his neck warmer. And the cut of the back when worn over the forehead keeps his head warmer.
And when I give up and tell him not to come crying to me when people point and laugh, he says they can’t. They’re shivering too hard.
