Tricked-Out Hat

During my lunch hour walk today I spotted a suavely-dressed young man wearing a black baseball cap with the word "HAT" in huge white capital letters emblazoned upon it.

HAT - on a hat! How meta. I was delighted, astounded.

I'm shy, and I rarely approach strangers. But I loved this hat, and I couldn't stop myself from pointing at it and saying "That's an awesome hat!"

"Pardon?" he said, popping an earbud free of his ear.

"Your hat - it's great," I repeated.

He chuckled a little self-consciously and smiled. "Oh, ha ha. Thanks." I could almost hear him thinking "Crazy old man."

Still, 'twas a superb hat.
