ONE LOW MONTHLY PIGMENT

I think a cowboy hat would make a good jello mold. But only the high rounded cowboy hats like Hoss used to wear on Bonanza. Didn't it seem like only the slow, goofy cowboys wore those high hats? You know, like sidekicks with high-pitched laughs who were always stumbling backwards into their horses' water troughs? Who would purposefully wear such a hat? Maybe in cowboy class the teacher made them wear them, like dunce caps. And the smart ones got to wear lower hats. And the really smart ones got to turn the kerchiefs sideways in a swashbuckerly manner, instead of frontways like a bib. Nowadays, though, that half kerchief turn wouldn't evoke impressions of swashbuckleness. People would suspect you're bicurious or whatnot. Learned that one the hard way.
