To the five boys who read HCG: this - our first ever post directed toward the male species - is for you.
Joe discovered an amazing creation at The North Face store last night: a knit hat with little speakers along the ears. It's sick. It allows you to listen to music while wearing a warm hat and not feel your earphones digging in your ears (I know this because I tried the hat on several times and danced). Today, Joe even called me on his phone from his hat.
Are you a guy who walks to work? Who takes the subway or train? Who runs outside every day during his lunch break in Conshohocken (E. Hanna)? Don't worry - even if that doesn't describe you (it doesn't describe Joe), you should still buy this hat. It's that awesome. When you take it off, it's like your hat is a little DJ playing cool music. Pretty freaky. Oh, and the speakers and wire can be removed so you can machine wash the hat.
Unfortunately, The North Face is anti-woman and does not make a comparable hat for the ladies. What, we don't walk to work? We don't like keeping our heads warm while we listen to music? Of course not. Take a note from HCG, North Face: I happen to know many women (C. Cahalan included) who would LOVE a technologically advanced hat like this.
Until then, I'll just have to steal Joe's (even if it is a little too big).
