My Kingdom for a Beanie


Since arriving in London the temperature has dropped and it has started snowing, I haven’t seen snow in over 4 years, I haven’t seen snow in London in over 18 years. This has had an adverse affect on my bald head, it was cold and my head was freshly shaved. I went to Harrods the first day to get something to eat, I was thinking I would probably find one there, we went to the basement to the ground floor and asked everybody, Harrods does not sell beanies, they sell hats, caps, top-hats, golfing hats, but not beanies which is strange.

I was walking around trying to take some pictures before meeting up with the family the next day. Then it started snowing as if I was in the middle of a blizzard, it felt like hard rain or something sticking to my head. I had a scarf which I wrapped around my head just to make sure my ears don’t freeze and fall off, I had my sunglass on so that I could walk without anything getting in my eyes. I was looking for a taxi but couldn’t find one, it took about 20 minutes to find a taxi to head home. After a day in a half I only managed to find a beanie at an unexpected place, it was an expensive beanie but it was worth every penny, it kept me warm throughout the rest of the night.

  1. Join the club, beanie seems to be gettin harder and harder to find. Best to shop online.

    Ps. maybe you couldn’t find a cab because you had a scarf wrapped around your head and were wearing sunglasses…(sketchy)lol

  8. Gahhh I’m sick of snow and don’t crazy if London’s snow was different and beautiful.

    To me, scarves are like the most essential things for facing snow and cold weather and beanie is the 2nd most important thing.
