Ad Hats

I don't know why, but when I started working in advertising I decided that at every agency where I worked I'd get a hat. But after nearly 5 years, for all their other perks, Y&R Chicago has failed to make hats for its employees. So I'm giving up the hobby and throwing all but my favorite Hadrian's Wall hat into the Goodwill bag. So if you see a homeless guy trudging around underneath the L tracks, and he's wearing a GSD&M or Ogilvy hat, don't worry. It's probably mine and not a sign of the fate of everyone in advertising. (Unless it's my old Arian, Lowe and Travis hat. Then it's probably one of my old co-workers.)

Man, I remember that Hadrian's Wall hat you gave me. I wore it all over the place. It was a great hat. Then one day, one of our ECD's at Burnett looked at me and said, "Why are you wearing a hat for another agency around here?" and I said "Good hat." Not sure what ever happened to it.
