IS A SCARF EVER A HAT?

I was six years old and very inquisitive. So much so that Father often called me Curious Abner. He sometimes called me Serious Abner. I am still as much one as the other.

I asked my father one Saturday during a lunch break at The Broom Family Clothing Store what the difference was between a Hat and a Cap. His reply:

A Hat has a brim and a Cap has a bill.

What about women?

We call them women  (a barely discernible grin.)

No Lovey (Mother and I called Father Lovey); on their heads

Too many categories for women son, everything on a woman’s head is a hat.

That lady over there is trying on a scarf. Is that a hat?

It’s time to get to work Abner.
