You want a Tigger hat?” I asked The Man-Child.” It looks pretty silly on a 6’3″ kid” (and most 15 year old kids are pretty image conscious, but not The Man-Child), I told him. He didn’t care. He liked it. Sigh. It’s a good thing your Gram gave you money, because the Dad wouldn’t pay for a silly thing like that. (Unless he saw it first.)
This was a really silly hat. It was a Santa stocking hat with Tigger ears glued on and painted with orange and black. Silly.
So off we went. All 15 of us. The Man-Child took his normal position. Out in front. And guess what. That goofy-looking (OK, maybe I should say silly) hat made it a lot easier to see The Man-Child. All of us could spot that orange thing walking down the street.
We followed it in the Magic Kingdom. We followed it in EPCOT. We followed it in the Animal Kingdom and in MGM. It was truly amazing. No one ever got lost. Following Tigger worked better than any tour flag I’ve ever seen. All we had to do was to look up and find the great orange hat and off we went.
All you have to do is have a 6 foot 3 inch, 15 year-old that doesn’t care how silly he looks. Surely everyone has one of those.
The Man-Child loved that hat so much he wore it to bed. Silly kid. I wonder what ever happened to that thing?
