Now that I think about it, I think I actually did realize it was a boy pilgrim hat I was wearing in my banner last year–but I thought it was easier to use it than to try to put a white cap on my stick-figure drawing. So the problem seems to be less with the hat-discernment part of my brain, and more with the remembering-things-so-I-don’t-sound-foolish-on-my-blog part of my brain.
So much for not sounding foolish on my blog. (And I had come so close . . . )
