Project Cubbins: Hat 317 - No SOBs in the Closet Edition

Day 317 / Hat 317: White, baseball-style cap with blue embroidery on front that reads: "SOB" with red embroidered circle/slash design over top -- denoting, of course, "No SOBs" in that iconic road sign sort of way. Interior tag reads: "Headmaster, Inc., one size fits all, made in Mexico."

This random loaner to the Project came very early this morning courtesy of the coat closet at my dentist's office and is proof that, if you ask, pretty much anyone with a head has access to some kind of hat.

Me (to the office's registered dental assistant Nancy Gonzalez) : "Hey Nancy, got any hats."

Nancy: "No."

Me: "There aren't any hats just kicking around the office?"

Nancy: "Um, no. Well, I don't think so. No wait ..."

Nancy goes to the closet, opens it up, peers way in the top back corner, gets a step stool, stands on it and reaches halfway to Pasadena (to office is in Beverly Hills, BTW) and retrieved this messaged millinery.

I'm guessing the "No SOB" is what makes visiting Dr,. Hanam-Jahr's office for my dental prophylaxis and the occasional bitewing X-ray so pleasurable.

And a big hat tip to Nancy for indulging this SOB.

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
