I don't know what my husband was thinking, but he came up with the brilliant idea of fabricating tin foil hats. He sat in his office concocting one of these things. Then he placed it on his head. My kids, of course, thought this was great.
"Oh, Daddy! Can you make one for us?"
"You just take some foil and wrap it around to make the hat. Go ahead. Make it yourselves."
Typical Daddy answer.
So my kids went in the kitchen and pulled out a roll of aluminum foil. They went to town.
While they were doing this, I was busy teaching violin lessons. As I demonstrated the Mozart A Major violin concerto for my student, my daughter came in and placed a shiny tin foil hat on my head. I kept playing. My student looked at me funny.
"What, you've never seen anyone play a Mozart concerto with a tin hat on?'
The student giggled and shook her head.
I kept my hat on for the rest of the lessons. Parents looked at me like I was nuts. Yeah, I guess I am. Obviously it runs in the family!
(By the way, we are the proud owners of four tin foil hats. I think we should start a business!)
