Alas my friends, a tragedy has indeed struck my household. A brave soldier, a survivor of bandits, thieves, the mad, the strange, four house moves, and being lost at the Seattle Center one night when I was very drunk, has been struck down.

I speak, of course, about my hat.

Yes, my hat. My symbol. Tragedy indeed. A vicious attack by a rusted garage door chain did what none before has managed. Many have tried, but this dire beast was far stronger than any opponent we had faced before. After prying my hat out of the death grip of rust and grease(how that happened in the first place, I'm still not clear on, but I'm eternally grateful that I didn't have long hair anymore) I thought it might be saved, but alas.. Washing reduced it to about half a hat, and the lining did not hold any more.

And that is the tale for this evening. When you read this, raise a drinking vessel in honor, or have a moment of silence for my lost companion. It will be missed. Especially now.

My head is cold.

(I didn't sleep enough, and this popped into my brain. Had to be shared. Sorry whoever reads this!)

And it seems to me, you lived your life
Like a hat upon a head
Always knowing who to cling to
When the streets got wet
And I would have liked to have worn you
Who am I trying to kid.
Your lining wore out long before
Your legend ever did

/me pours a 40 on tha ground

*sniffs, wipes his eyes* That was beautiful, Chaz.

Sorry to hear about the fish too.
