Weirdly warm

My friend Phil made a few of these last year and actually wore one around for most of the winter. He claims their nose-warming properties hinder winter colds, but I'm pretty sure he wore it mostly to freak people out. There's something slightly S&M about them, in spite of the fact that they're made of wool.

Pick yours up today at Local 23, 23 Bernard W. in Mile End.

Dylan Thomas makes reference to a "crocheted nose bag" in his classic poem "A Child's Christmas in Wales". It was one of the "useful presents", made for him by an aunt, "alas, no longer whinnying with us", or words to that effect (I once had the entire poem memorized). I suspect that knitted nose covers (which usually tie around the back of the head) were relatively popular in the Edwardian era, and possibly even in Victorian times. My nose always gets horribly cold - I better pick one up!

On days like today they should hand them out for free! Just imagine the advertising opportunities that arise in a cold city like Montreal....and the hoards of tourists that would come to watch people actually wear these. Gotta love winter and the creativity it spurs!
