The Dream Hat
Okay, step back.
The insanely cute boy in the picture is named Owen. Ed's the hat.
Another step back.
Yes, I named a hat. I named it Ed. Ed was a constant companion through high school and college and at some point - there may have been alcohol involved - I dubbed him Ed, grabbed a Sharpie and wrote his name inside the hat. It is there to this very day.
Anyway, Owen is sometimes afraid at night, especially fearful of having bad dreams. When Mia went through something similar, we found a bandana, magically filled it with good dreams, and tied it around her head. Owen did the bandana thing once but quickly gravitated towards Ed as his good dream delivery vehicle. Every night over the past week we've loaded my stinky old hat with good dreams, popped it on Owen's head and he's drifted off to sleep.Posted by Chris at November 5, 2013 7:04 AM | TrackBack
