Mr. Dreadful - Neurodiversity, chaos magick, and cake

Apparently now I have told him to change his appearance to avoid harrassment. No, I said that women don't have a choice. Not the same thing. This guy has met me, so knows I do not present myself conservatively. In fact, I am marginally more 'alternative' on a daily basis than he is, yet I don't get harrassed on the street. Maybe it's an attitude thing?

>>When Brits and Americans argue about petty things like which side of the road is superior for driving on and odd tidbits of slang.<<

Haven't we grown out of that yet? I'm sure that if it does happen it's either in jest or by someone who's under 15.

Driving on the right/left? I am continually swapping. smiley - shrug Live with it. Surely having to speak a different language when you go to another country is more of a challenge.

quotes

Pastey, flat caps are fine, but I want a big peak to keep the sun out. A simple flat topped cap would do, and I have bought them online, but always too small. I never see them in shops.

On caps, have you considered an Afghan karakul?

A style very well adapted to either hot or cold conditions



On long hair, I can remember being occasionally accosted inappropriately during my long haired days.

They usually changed their minds very quickly when I casually flexed a 6"/16cm wide biceps at them in profile.

The Karakul looks a bit cosy for my purposes, and crucially, lacks a peak. Basically, I just want a cap which does what a baseball cap does. Obviously, the simple answer would be for me to start liking the baseball cap.

A panama hat would be more stylish.

I have a Panama, they are indeed awesome. I would make sure though that you get one that fits properly (tightly) so that it doesn't blow off in the wind.

I already have two Panama hats, one for the garden and one for best...they're great, but a cap has its place, too.

If we're selecting hats for Quotes, then how about a sombrero?

Or a more practical suggestion might be a hunting cap. Maybe not the kind with ear flaps - there are types that are similar to baseball caps but don't hug the scalp so much.

On caps, one of the nice things about retiring from the army is that I don't have to put a right-to-left curve in the bill any more.

Instead, I can go back to wearing it flat, Okie style.
