Today… I’m announcing my goal to get the term “toquehead” into the Oxford Canadian Dictionary.
As I write this… it’s -8C with wind chill of -21C.
THAT is cold.
I feel for anyone who didn’t wear a toque today.
I get to work at around 4:00 AM to prep for the show – and today I LOOK like I got here at 4:00 AM.
But I don’t care.
In fact… today… I’m standing tall and embracing my toquehead.
Toquehead is very similar to bedhead but doesn’t get the same respect.
To be honest, my campaign started because I’m a terrible speller.
I had to look-up toquehead and it turns out I had to guess at the correct spelling because it isn’t in my dictionary.
“Blog” is in there.
So is “eh” and “toonie”.
Even “beer league” is a legitimate term.
Why not “toquehead”?
Seriously… we all know what a toquehead is.
Yes… that’s my toquehead at the top of this blog. It’s hard to see because my hair is so short… but the matted-down toque effect is evident.
I know there are a lot of people like me walking around their office after having worn a toque on their way to work. I say stand tall. Hold your disheveled-hair high and join me in my campaign.
Email me pics of your best toquehead (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll post them.
(don’t forget to look for your secret word and to enter it for points)
