As Promised, A Picture of Me Wearing the Oscar the Grouch Hat

Sesame Street Oscar The Grouch Pilot Hat with Ear FlapsDon’t anybody say I don’t follow through with my promises, even when they involve public humiliation. So you might recall from my post on the upcoming Oscars that I’d made a request from you, my faithful readers. I wanted the Oscar the Grouch hat you see at the top of this post, to use as the yearly trophy for my Oscar party. (Not content to just do March Madness pools, I do Oscar pools, too. Hey–I like to swim.) I promised that if someone bought it for me, then I’d take a picture and post it here. I had made the plea pretty much jokingly–I hadn’t even thought to look to see what sort of size the thing is. I have an enormous head, and most hats don’t fit me, but I didn’t think of it at the time, mainly because I didn’t think anyone would take me up on the offer.

Well, the trouble with having your mother read your blog is that she’s got plenty of experience when it comes to you and embarrassing pictures. She bought the hat and sent it to me, and now I have an Oscar trophy.

And you have this. Warning–what has once been seen cannot be unseen.

Don’t say I didn’t tell you.

Oscar party, here I come!
