BrewNSpew Cafe – September 17, 2018


Hey, coffee and tea lovers, and anything in between. Welcome to BrewNSpew Cafe, where there is never a dull moment. The chatter here always raises an eyebrow, perhaps to show surprise or mild disapproval.

“Some hats can only be worn if you’re willing to be jaunty, to set them at an angle and to walk beneath them with a spring in your stride as if you’re only a step away from dancing. They demand a lot of you.”
― Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

Word of the week – jaunty (adjective) – having or expressing, cheerful, and self-confident manner. Synonyms – cheerful, cheery, merry, jolly, joyful, perky.

Wearers of many hats

deter those pesky bats

in the belfry, that is

a plethora of styles,

shapes, and colors

jaunty noggin covers

hats for every occasion

defines one’s reputation

caps, beanies, and berets

buckets, bowlers and flat caps

fedoras and fancy dress hats

derbies, boaters, and flat caps

 fez, porkpie, and Panama hats

hats for sun, rain, and Cowboy Bob

useful for any season and any reason

if your cranium gives a hat a ride

be sure to wear it with pride

    What a fun word. Some of these words I’ve not heard in a very long time. Thanks for reviving them.

    Have a fabulous day, Eugenia. ♥

    Hats and shades can truly add a lot of oomph without doing much.

      Yes, hats can make an outfit fun and a pair of shades – even better. I wear and love both. I’m having eye surgery this Wednesday. Hopefully, it won’t slow me down too much and I’m looking forward to clearer vision.

    Great idea bringing fellow bloggers together, I’m looking forward to finding some great new pages to follow! Also, I’m a big vocabulary buff myself, so Word Of The Day is right up my alley 😉

    I’m not a hat wearer unless I’m outdoors a lot. I need to protect my face from harmful UV. There’s no need to push the hand of time quicker, right? 🙂 The rhythmic words flowed merrily across the screen and while I’m not a ‘hat wearer’ I have worn many hats (figuratively) throughout my life. I’d like to think that I wore them jaunty but I can’t swear to that every time. Nicely done! BTW, I don’t think I’ve ever told you how cozy the images in your footer make me feel. I love the flickering fire! It makes me want to curl up beside it with a cup of coffee with a blanket across my lap. 🙂

      Hi, Cathy! Yes, I’ve been the wearer of many hats, as well – mostly during my career. I love hats and wear them frequently when outside because I am very fair.

      I’m delighted you enjoyed my poem and so glad you noticed my images in my footer. I am trying to give my blog the appearance of a log cabin. My other blog has a rustic appearance with campfire items and firewood in the footer.

      I can’t wait for cooler weather so I can sit by the fire with a cup of coffee!

      Have a great day!
