Project Cubbins: Hat 328 - Pink, Pint-Sized Cowboy Edition

Day 328 / Hat 328: Sparkly, pink plastic cowboy hat with dark pink plastic hatband detail and elastic string.

Interior tag reads: "Hat - Chapeau, Amscan, Inc. Elmsford, NY 10523, made in China."

This is the second hat plucked from the freshly acquired MRBOH (the first was yesterday's) and if a traditional cowboy hat (like the Stetson I sported back at PC 50) is considered a ten gallon hat, then this one is probably a three-ounce version at best.

I don't have a problem with that though because where I come from, three ounces is equivalent two shots (aka jiggers) of alcohol. Which means, in essence, I'm wearing a double-shot cowboy hat.

As for the pink sparkly hue? Let's just say it matches my saddle and spurs perfectly.

Oh, and wait 'til you see my little pony ....

PC 327: Ya Heard

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 celebrated 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
