Wearing different hats
June 9, 2013

differenthatsSon: What do you think of my hat?

Mum: Which hat?

Son: My imaginary hat.

Mum: Ah – yes, It’s a fantastic hat.

Son: Everyone’s got an imaginary hat. We learnt about it at school today. When you look at something and think about it, it goes onto your hat.

Mum: When you look at what?

Son: Like that picture on the wall. I look at that picture and now it’s on my hat.

Mum: Ah – I see. Does the hat change?

Son: Whenever you look at things yes. If you don’t imagine them then it doesn’t change. Everyone in the world’s got one. But don’t make it too big otherwise you won’t fit through the door.

Mum: So is there just one thing at a time on your hat?

Son: No, you can think of all sorts of things at once and they come onto your hat all together.
Guess what? At school one person said “ice cream” for their hat, but that would just melt in the sun wouldn’t it? And it would drip all down their face!
And another person said “chocolate”, but that would get wet from the rain and melt in the sun, so Mrs W said, “Only take it out in the cloud!”
