The post that proves all the haters wrong


Look at this will you?
It is a post. It has been posted.
I guess you knew that, since had it not been posted, you likely wouldn't be reading it.
All the haters can go home now and think about their wrong life choices.
This forum works just fine, my post is my cite.

I think we need a "How's your Mental Health" thread.

What I don't get is all the hate for the hatters.

ETA: Unless someone hates hats. Wife hated hats, especially on me.

I wish hats would come back. I used to love getting a new hat for Easter. And it was a Thing to Do to go into the hat department at the big stores and try on hats.

It was JFK who put the kibosh on hats for men, but Jackie wore them. Why didn't they stick around?

I miss gloves, too. Especially these days! I rooted around in a dresser and located an old-timey pair of Della Street gloves. A woman wasn't well-dressed without a pair of gloves. I watch a fair number of vintage murder mysteries on TV and a female murderer never had to worry about leaving fingerprints at the scene or on the murder weapon. Of course, today gloves wouldn't look right with jeans and a t-shirt, which even we Old Ladies wear.

'Bless your heart', OP










(I never hate the hatters or the haters or the glovers. Well, there was this guy in highschool who's last name was Glover, I hated him)

I made my wife buy a hat, she was beautiful in it, people stopped her in the mall to compliment it. When we went fishing, the wind blew it in the lake. She pretended to be sad.

I HATE stories with sad endings! And I hate it when hats meet sad ends. Did you catch any fish? If you did, don't tell me. If you didn't, I want to hear about that. In detail.

What did the hat look like? I miss it already.

It seems that gloves with masks are all the rage now. Doesn't matter what you pair them with, jeans, shorts, whatever. Fashion's gone mad, I tell you.

Interesting... so masks are the new hats, from a fashion POV, that is. I can just picture a Vogue cover...

I believe the recent trope would go "McNightshadeface"?

Haters of one of the Bs will, as a matter of principle. Haters of the other B can remain in place.

It's more contempt for the contemptuous.

--Visualizing a man in nothing but a t-shirt and a hat, and of course, a woman in nothing but opera gloves.--

And by all means, let those two stay on the lawn.
