Six fun reasons to wear a scarf over your face

Right now in Chicago it’s 6 degrees outside and nobody is wearing a scarf over their face. I must have passed 100 people and I was specifically looking to see if anyone was wering a scarf. None. Zip. What is wrong with you people? It’s SIX degrees. A scarf will keep your face warm.

I like wearing a scarf over my face, here’s why you should wear one:

  1. It keeps your mouth and nose oh so toasty warm.
  2. It enables you to sing “Bear down, Chicago Bears” without anyone noticing.
  3. You can pretend to be a secret ninja. Who doesn’t want to be a ninja!?
  4. If you don’t like being a ninja (you’re weird if you don’t, but anyways…), it’s just fun to wear something around your head. It’s like a transformation. Zoooosh! You are now somebody else!
  5. It can be fun to match your scarf with what you are wearing.
  6. You don’t worry as much when someone coughs. “ah-HA! I have protection from thine germs!”

I have been wearing a scarf around my face for the past two weeks. I also have noticed that no one around my office building wears a scarf. I wear a scarf for the same reasons. It keeps me warm. I used to have the mentality that I can brave the brutal Chicago winters. But as I age, I am siding with the perspective of maximum comfort. A scarf allows for that. It’s amazing how… Read more »

chicagotribune.com had a poll on whether men should wear scarves or not [I know, totally stupid!”> … fortunately the majority was for the scarf.

i saw that poll. I think the trib wrote an article prior to the poll saying that men shouldn’t wear scarves. I’m guessing there was such a public outcry that the Trib decided to go to the public and take a poll. I was at the post office yesterday and the Postal Clerk lady complemented my scarf. She mentioned the Trib poll. I told her that I wear a scarf cuz it’s freakin’ cold out… Read more »

Hey guys, I like wearing a scarf too over my face when it is cold, although it hasn’t been cold here in the UK often this year, perhaps a couple of times. Scarves are worrn my many guys, it is common here in England. By the way, I like Spudart and Unlikelymoose blogs. Hope to create one soon.

I visited England in April 2003. I absolutely loved it. I’m glad to hear you’re a fan. I look forward to your blog. I’m not surprised that scarves are common for guys oversees. It’s another example why the Brits are smarter than most people in the States.

I wear a scarf, but I am a lady, so a man wearing a scarf makes sence to me. My 4 boys all wear one to school on very cold days. We all have Black scarves that go with anything. The boys are all hoosiers. (you are manly for freezing to death?nope, just stupid!!!)
