The Goofy hat

Everything is getting Goofy around here. Remember the Goofy hat I bought on eBay? It just arrived today.

It's freaking ENORMOUS. Like 18 inches tall!! And the ears are about a foot long! I'm not sure what I expected (like, a small discreet Goofy hat?) but this is HUGE! I tried to get my girls to try it on for the camera, but they were AFRAID of it.

Just to show the MASSIVE SCALE of this thing, here it is juxtaposed on the full front page of today's newspaper.

I'm not sure I can stand to wear it running, either. It actually fits my massive head reasonably well! If I can stand it, I'll wear it for the half marathon. Maybe that will help me keep a slower pace than I'd normally start out. More wind resistance, and all.

But Nancy...set the camera on "auto" and put the thing on and post a pix...I want to see YOU wearing it! That's so funny that your girls wouldn't have anything to do with it!
Are you actually going to run with this on? Maybe it WILL keep you warm this winter....!

I'm loving all the demands for my photo, but I think I'll hold out until the actual race day. Like a bride and her wedding dress, you know?

Flatman said...

you could always tie it around you and store your water bottle there, and your gels, and your camera, and your phone...

Ya, what Danny said, plus yuor kitchen sink. You're gonna run in that thing. You're going to sweat your ass off! Better hope there is no wind. That is a crack up. I saw a guy do a triathlon in one of those huge sumo suits, in Phoenix! How sweaty is that? Uhh, shweaty balls! You watch Saturday Night Live, right?
