You bring it, I'll wear it! ?

In hindsight, this is one reason why I don’t bet anymore. 🙂
Thirty–six minutes after game 7 finished, the hat was on its way. We didn’t know when we’d meet up, but the deal was that I’d wear my new hat at the next WordCamp we attended. I assumed it would probably somewhere in Texas next year, but with some unexpected travel, it turns out I and my family were able to make it to WordCamp US in Nashville. On the second day, I got to sport my new lid.
It did the job. Over the rest of the day, I was congratulated on my team’s win and my nice hat by:
- Another Dodgers fan. ☹️
- A Yankees fan. ?
- A heckler. ?
- A drunk dude yelling “GO ‘STROS!” on the sidewalk in downtown Nashville. ?
This hat’s going in my collection of good stories and good friends.
