Celebrate the Small Things: In Praise of Beanies

It's winter in Australia, and that means beanie time. I have very little hair, in fact I appear totally bald from the front, so cold air and my naked cranium do not mix well.

I'm not sure I look very good in a beanie, but I do know that I love the warmth they provide. I have a nice selection: a black one for work, a green one for play, a Bulldogs one to show my support for my favourite NRL team, and a heavy duty Holden Racing Team one for Canberra, and the snow.

So today, I am giving thanks for beanies and the great job they do to protect heads, both hairy and hairless, all over the world, from the unfriendly, occasionally hostile cold air.

Three cheers for beanies. Do you have a favourite one?

  6. You're so funny! Yay for beanies! I'll never get used to the fact that while most of the world is suffering through dreadful heatwaves, you and my other Aussie and NZ friends are in the middle of winter. Strange world we live in...
