There's a very strong bond between a boy and his cap. That bond is established somewhere around the age of seven, when he wins his first junior league game of baseball or whatnot. Triumphantly he sends his lucky cap flying as he scores the winning point! His teammates lift him up on their shoulders and chant his name..
I wasn't that type of child, I was outdoorsy in that I occasionally ventured into the garden to carefully bury future archeological relics or take artsy analogue pictures of the neighbour's horse. But as I've explained earlier, I'm going through somewhat of a second puberty nowadays. And the time has come that I establish that special bond with a gorgeous ecru snapback with emerald embroidery by Kenzo. I've been lusting over this one so badly and you can imagine my glee when my big sister got it for me. I was a little worried it wouldn't fit over my bouncy 'fro, but I needn't have worried (I just can't take it off in public, maje helmet hair). So as dusk settled my sister and I explored the old salt factory, the neighbouring fields and what must be the only graffiti in our pristine village.
The sun's last efforts complimented my cream colour scheme quite nicely, wouldn't you say?
