Success: I have it, and I wasn't even expecting it.
As some of you might remember, I wrote this post about two months ago, lamenting about how it appeared that many home-spun haberdashers seemed to focus their more fabulous efforts on children instead of adults. Which--as an adult--I find rather disheartening, because I'd like a hat with stuff like robots on it, too. So I wrote the post, showing a few examples of hats I wished would be made for people of the 'reached-the-age-of-majority-a-while-back' set, published it and then promptly forgot all about it.
Why? Because, frankly, I didn't think anything would come of it. Seriously--I really didn't. I figured my post would amount to little more than shouting into the void; I'd feel better about speaking my mind, but it really wouldn't achieve much in the end.
That was until yesterday, when I got this comment in my inbox:
Upon reading that, I let out a high-pitched noise that probably irritated all the dogs in northwestern Pennsylvania.
So today, I'm sharing with you the two hats that I first saw in my inbox. Partly because today is the first of March and there's a certain holiday coming up (so I think the timing is fortuitous,) but mostly because this seems to be the only way to adequately show my gratitude for being heard, even though I wasn't expecting to be.
Thank you, Foolmoon!
