The Secret Life of Tiny Hats
I find these hats incredibly inspirational. They come from the Ministry of Tiny Hats, which just sounds like something out of South American magical realist fiction. But the ministry exists in real life. That means, in real life, I could buy that beehive hat and wear it everyday, everywhere.
It creates a conundrum. Would I first need to overhaul my merely serviceable personality and create one fabulous enough to match such an accessory? Or would the hat itself exert some kind of power over me, gradually turning me into a full-time magical fairy godmother/dominatrix/interstate woman of mystery? I think first I'd like to observe the effects of tiny hats on others.
