Today is the first day of my golf league. So, I just got out a new sun visor I had bought recently. It is one of those that has kind of a headband in it, but the headband goes across your forehead and across the top of your ears, instead of a “real” headband that goes over the top of your head. And that, of course, is because this “headband” has a visor on it that would look pretty darn silly sticking up on top of your head, and it wouldn’t give you much shade either! (Is that clear as mud?)
Anyway, I noticed that there was a label attached to the inside. I wondered why there would be a label on this visor. Was it a warning that it is flammable? Or a warning “it is illegal to remove this label” like you see on mattresses? Anyway, I cut it out because I thought it might show, but before I threw it away, I looked to just see what it actually said, and then I laughed out loud. I quote:
“Machine wash cold. Gentle cycle. Do not bleach. Lay flat to dry. Cool iron if necessary. Wash separately with like colors.”
It’s a $10 visor, for heaven sake. But, when I read the first part, there was something in my mind that said, “Hey, I never thought about a visor being able to be washed in the machine!” But, they lost me from “Lay flat to dry” on. I have no idea why this label ended up sewn to a cheap, rigid, would-probably-fall-apart-even-if-you-hand-washed-it visor, but it made me laugh out loud, and I hope it makes you smile too.
Now I’m going to play golf — in the league — with many women who have played the game a long time, and are very good — and I haven’t as much as swung a club since last fall. I hope I don’t embarrass myself (more than usual, that is — I’m not a great golfer). One friend told me last year that I play “Army golf.” Right.Left.Right.Left. She’s right. I use the WHOLE course.
