Subject: RE: Help: Wearing hats or caps ; Manners?
If you haven't got a cap you can't take it off, as a way of saying something, and you can't keep it on as a way of saying something else; and you can't throw it in the air or wave it, no matter how excited or exhuberant you are feeling - you are in fact depriving yorself of a significant communication tool. .

It's a bit as if you had dogs insisting on having their tails docked.

And you get a lot colder on a chilly day, all over, because that's where you lose the heat.
