Cowboy hats
« on: August 01, 2006, 08:17:38 pm »
I'm just learning how to create a poll and came up with this simple subject.  Just seeing how it suppose to work.

To answer the question, I own a black hat and a straw hat.

I voted "none." As a Midwesterner, it feels a bit too costume-y to wear around here. (In fact, come to think of it, I only wear any hat at all when it's below 15 degrees.)

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Mine is white and kinda of a straw material - I'm not exactly sure what it's made out of.

I wear it out occassionally, when the mood strikes : )  It took awhile for me to grow into the idea.  I'm from the second biggest city Michigan, we don't wear cowboy hats there - but since I've moved to a much smaller city in the "agricultural" side of Washington - I see a lot more of them and I feel more secure in my cowboy hatness *lol*

You sound like a cowgirl to me.  Yeehaw!

Here in Las Vegas, I actually seen a lot of people wearing hats and boots.  I can never see myself wearing a cowboy hat.  I only wear my black hat, resembles Jack's but not that nice, twice when I go hiking.  I wear the straw hat often working in my backyard.

I live in a place where a fair number of people wear cowboy hats, but I don't own one. (I own an old straw hat that's a bit like a cowboy hat - use it for gardening and stuff - but I wouldn't call it a cowboy hat to somebody who was picky about it.) The cowboy hats symbolize a lot of things to the people who wear them, and I'm not a member of that particular subculture. And I wouldn't be comfortable pretending to be.
Watch out. That poster has a low startle point.
