“The Kippa Tan Line”


Last Shabbos I ran into a problem that plagues me every year. The Kippa Tan Line”.

Last Shabbos was one of the first nice warm days of the spring and after shul I spent some time being sociable and talking with the neighbors. The usual inane crap and gossip.

The problem started a little later that afternoon when my wife commented on how I got a lot of color. That’s when I panicked. Unlike some people, I can’t a tan or get color without putting in the proper planning. You see, I’m a member of a very dicriminated against group in society by being, shall we say, folically challenged. And don’t wear a kippa at work. If I don’t take the proper precautions, I end up with a nice base color all over my face, neck and any part of the head not covered by the kippa and when I take the kippa off, I’m left looking like a complete nincompoop with a white, untanned dome. And I go through this at the beginning of every spring.

*sigh*

Since it was Shabbos, I held onto the hope that by Monday morning the line differentiating ‘tan’ from ‘non-tan’ would not be so discernable. All I can say is that it was and thank g-d for makeup.

Any of you ‘inventors’ out there have any ideas?

They have these translucent signs you can stick to your back window of your car, so you can let the whole world know you are a red wing fan and still see out the back window.

You need to take one of those and make it into a kippa.

Yeah, real nice. Then I'll have like a thousand little red dots on my head in the shape of a wheel with a wing sticking out. :-)
