Dry Mesh Hat

Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the lingo that kids are using these days. I blame rap videos but that’s an admission that makes me sound about 90-years-old. Not that being 90 is a bad thing – my Nona is pushing 90 and still enjoys a Dewar’s each night. With a cigar. She’s a cool old broad. Oh, and she’d be OK with me calling her an old broad. That’s how cool she is.

Anyway, I was walking down the street the other day, wearing my See Jane Ride dry mesh panel hat. I like it because it has a built-in sweatband, a low profile, and a pre-curved visor…oh, and See Jane Ride embroidered right on the front. So, I’m strutting down Main Street and this kid (OK, maybe he was in his 20s but he looked so young, which makes me feel old again) screams at me “FAT LID!”

Horrified, I stopped in my tracks. What kind of horrible man-child is this – screaming obscenities at an upstanding – as far as he knows – woman like myself? What are they teaching children these days? I wasn’t going to take it so I marched up to this hooligan to give him a piece of my mind. Mid-rant he told me that he was just complementing my hat. It seems that FAT was actually phat, which means super awesome and LID was in reference to my cap.

Oops. I guess I should have just said, “Thanks.” Lesson learned.
