Out of the Blue

Today is Ash Wednesday, so hats off (literally) for all who are celebrating. This means I forgot yesterday was Shrove Tuesday. So I missed Mardi Gras, and more tragically, Pancake Tuesday, as I love pancakes. Well, I blew my chance to get plastic beads for flashing my goods, but at least I can still get some pancakes, so I'll have to content myself with that.

Just because you don't know it, doesn't mean it's made up.
Nor does just because many people are doing something, make it right.

I admit I was ignorant about this change in usage, but that's what it is, a change. Personally, I never wear them even in the winter because even in the cold they eventually cause my head to sweat. Never have understood how people can stand to wear them in warm weather. Different strokes for different folks.
