You know your obsessions are affecting others when they start to send you unsolicited sombrero photos.

This one was sent by my friend Jill, who works as a PR operative at Busch Gardens. They should give her a raise for her eagle-eye abilities:


Jill writes:

I see you and the sombrero have not ceased torturing inanimate objects.

That's always the assumption, isn't it? I would argue that the images of said objects is being enhanced by the sombrero. It is not an instrument of torture.

I mean, does The Stanley Cup look like it's being tortured here? Is it under duress? I say no.

Maybe you're just projecting your negativity and your need for sombrero healing onto the oversized bottle of Corona, my dear Jill.

In other news, we have a new addition to the pantheon on sombrero wearers who have participated in The Sombrero Project:


This is Sarah on the right, one of our summer interns. She did great work, but one of the prerequisites was that she had to pose in the sombrero. She not only did that, she wore the Mexican shawl and posed with our esteemed colleague, Leland.

Well done, Sarah. May your future be as bright as your smile.

By the way, you can see the other parts of The Sombrero Project by clicking on the link, as well as the subsequent parts Dos, Tres, Quatro and Cinco.
