I don't know what the weather's like where you are, but let me tell you, Internets; it is hot here. Hot-hot-hot. HOT. We're talking 'Heat Advisory' hot. 'Excessive Heat Warning' hot. 'Might Die From Heat Stroke' hot. And--the real crux of the issue for me--'Can't Sleep Worth A Darn 'Cause It's So Flippin' HOT' hot.
Seriously. I can handle a lot of things, but my ability to handle them with grace and fortitude diminishes greatly when I don't get a good night's sleep. So when I keep waking up because either I have sweated myself awake (trust me; it can happen, people,) or because The Husband made the mistake of rolling too close to me in his sleep (AUGH, BODY HEAT; GET IT AWAY FROM ME,) it should come as no surprise that when I finally do get up I am nowhere near charming and delightful to behold.
Not that I've ever had the reputation for being a morning person in the first place or anything, but let's just say it's worse when I haven't had a decent amount of sleep. Much, much worse.
So in honor of the fact that I've been stomping around like a 5' 3" dragon with an attitude these past few mornings, how's about some dragon hats, huh?
Did you see that movie called How To Train Your Dragon? Did you like it? Did you want a hat in the shape of the eponymous dragon, Toothless? Then you might wanna ask this lady how she made hers.
This hat I like purely because it looks like it's taking a nap when you aren't wearing it. It's a hat! It's art! It's both at the same time!
For those of you who prefer your dragons to be a little less obvious, we've got this pink mamma-jamma.
But seeing as you're looking at this blog, something tells me you'd rather see more hats like this:
Which I totally can't blame you for, because that hat is pretty stinkin' awesome. I just wish I knew where that blogger got it from.
And now, I would like to reenact what happened when I saw this:
...No, that hat's red, and Maleficent didn't wear red. She wore black trimmed with purple. But darned if that hat doesn't look really stinkin' similar.
Having looked at quite a few dragon hats recently, I would have to say that I have come to conclude that if you want a quick way to let everyone know that this is a dragon hat, you need to add a pointy spine ridge.
Consider the above Exhibit A.
This yellow-spined version with the triangular ear flaps would be Exhibit B.
And this pink-and-lilac combo with the I-don't-know-whats on the side would make up Exhibit C.
In short, Pointy Spine Ridge = Cruise Control to Dragon. Although if you want to avoid the possibility that people might mistake that for a stegosaurus hat, you could always just go with a hat that leaves no room for debate.
See? There is no question that this sucker right here is a dragon hat. The only way there could be any question is if someone is feeling like they wanna be difficult and argue that it's actually a stegosaurus with wicked heartburn.
And while that might be annoying, just try to resist the urge to set 'em on fire, okay? Local law enforcement tends to frown on that.
