I’ve had this 2009 photo of Matt printed for a few years now, just because I liked it, but I didn’t know what I was going to do the page about. But when I pulled it out the other day it hit me. Matt calls winter hats “toboggans,” which I love. I had never heard the term used that way before, so it always tickles me when he says something like, “It’s cold out there. Where’s my toboggan?”
When I researched this use of the word online, I found out that it is a southern thing. So Matt must have picked it up after moving from Michigan to North Carolina as a boy.
