It was my favorite hat, so I feel the need to give him (my hat) a proper farewell. This really has nothing to do with Uruguayan (or Montevidean) culture or food, but it happened here.
This is a nephew of a good friend of mine. When he asked to try on the hat, and I saw that it looked much better on him than it ever did on me (by far), I had to let him go. Goodbye my gorra, may you live a happy life listening to the beautiful Uruguayan Spanish around you.
