Hope got new hearing aid molds recently. They're a bit too big, making her ears jut out. Hope is so self-conscious of the goofy look that she's become adept and whipping them off seconds after we put them in.
Mo's solution: A bonnet that makes Hope look like she's gearing up to share the first Thanksgiving with those kindly Wampanoags or burn witches at the stake along with those other no-goodniks in "The Crucible."
It works. Sort of. Hope is so stunned by the fashion effrontery that she becomes paralyzed with shame. She doesn't grab her hearing aids. But she doesn't do much else either. She just sits there, dumbstruck, thinking, "Why am I wearing this silly hat?"
Too bad for her. She looks too cute to take it off.
