Bede has a hat he always wears. It’s an unassuming brown beanie with a tan brim and he is never, ever parted from it. He’s got it there in my sidebar photo and pretty much every picture taken of him since about 2009. It, along with an enormous pair of men’s chinos, rolled up and belted in, was the first article of clothing he was willing to wear – before that he was naked all the time.
It is his Scrat Hat, and it defines Bede.
I have sad news.
|“Mom, can you fix my hat?”|
No worries. I’ve already cast on for a new one.
