Crazy Hat Day

It's Red Ribbon Week, and today was "Go Wild About a Drug-Free Life and Wear a Crazy Hat" Day at Conner's school. So he dug out his authentic coonskin hat (from Aunt Lydia years ago, I think?) and excitedly wore it to school this morning.

When he got home he was very excited. "We had a hat contest today, and I won 2nd place in my class!" (Followed by many more details, like that it was his idea, how the contest worked, who got first and third places, etc.)

"Wow," I said, "That's great!"

Then later when he told Bret about it he said, "Well, the contest was just in my imagination."

Bret and I together exclaimed: "You had a contest in your imagination and didn't win?!"

"I did too win, I won 2nd."

That kid and his imagination! At least we know he's learned that it's not all about first place...

The choice of hat really complements the disturbing lack of teeth...
