Ode to an Unphotogenic Hat

7.28.2011

First, I have an announcement. (Some people might call this a disclaimer. You know who you are.)

I realize the following lines look eerily similar to a poem, but before you start judging me for my terrible poem-writing abilities, don't. I just felt like spacing it like this. It's not supposed to be a poem. Thank you.

Okay, moving on.


My dear Jordan...

I love you, and
I think you're really cute.
But that hat.
That Hat. 
It's not photogenic.
It's too...
straight or something.
It makes your head look...
wide or something.
And it's red.
It makes me look red,
and I already do enough of that on my own.

I'm not sure what the point of this is.
Except to say that that's a quite
unphotogenic hat.

You're ruining my
I-just-bought-a-new-dress-and-want-to-take-a-cute-picture-but-your-hat-is-making-me-look-red
thing.

So really,
I guess I'm saying that I'm shallow
and conceited
and burnt.

So yes, I'm blaming my sunburn
on your hat. 

...I'm very glad we could have this talk.

Sincerely,
Me

Thanks for the poem love! Even though this was specifically stated to be not a poem, I think it was a great success in any case.
