For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn - Hemingway

The Girl in the Yellow Hat (Part Two)

To my absolute intrigue, she appeared a few minutes late for class, again choosing to keep the yellow hat on her head. 

Was it warmth? A sense of security? Some people have teddy bears, and baby blankets, and trinkets, and comfort food, but this girl had her yellow hat, I reasoned. However, in a eureka moment I found that conclusion to be unfulfilled. 

I realized it wasn’t the hat itself that lead me to unswervingly sense her arrival - although quiet and unspectacular to the unexamined eye - but the thick ora that hovered around her. 

This poor girl was unbelievably sad.
