costume happiness

At a San Francisco bar over the weekend, I discovered that the Indian guy standing next to me (friend of friend) was holding a rice hat.

He said he's moving the next day to the East Coast.

"You're going to use one of your carry-ons to transport the rice hat?" I said.

"No," he said. "I'll wear the rice hat on the plane, so that I can still have another carry-on."

...

He was kind enough to let me take a photo with his rice hat.

Reminds me of a rice hat i bought in Thailand. Definitely the kind of object you think is a must buy but that you will actually never use. Where is mine? I completely forgot...

I have a have a hat like that. It's in a closet. If you had one, we could wear them and look like a couple of stereotypes.

I don't have one, but I'll get one if we can wear them together. Where would we wear it to? Our lunch in Palo Alto?
