Why does wearing a hood feel so good?

Asked by peedub (8698points) May 19th, 2008

I’m not talking aesthetics here, or even hood-wearing in extreme weather. I mean times like around the house.

Am I channelling my Druid ancestors? Do I secretly wanna be Rocky?

I feel ya. I’m actually wearing my hoodie with the hood pulled up right now. And I’m not doing it because it is cold. It just feels good.

I’m totally a cord-puller. Sometimes I’ll even pull and tie, and that’s just craziness.

I think it makes some people feel secured and protected…like Kenny!

I don’t like wearing hoods, hats, anything on my head. Sorry peedubya.

peedub's avatar

That’s cool. You don’t need to be coverin’ that nice hair of yours.

YOU don’t need to be too, Dude!!

Well I do like to think I’m on a Highway to the Danger Zone , but that beard really wouldn’t work for me.

I so need to watch Top Gun today

I reckon it could be to do with re-creating the feeling of the womb, or something…

Or you just feel mo’ gangsta.

I wear mine lined with aluminum foil to keep the alien space rays from infiltrating my thoughts.

wildflower's avatar

what thoughts?

playthebanjo's avatar

If I told you…out in the open like this…I wouldn’t need the foil! THEY are EVERYWHERE….....LISTENING.


wildflower's avatar

Damn! I see I’ll have to be more creative to get it out of you…...

playthebanjo's avatar

Maybe I can fool the aliens by typing my thoughts in l337zpk

wildflower's avatar

Yes, do that…..(and don’t worry about whether or not they’ve recruited a translator passing themselves of as a little bunch of heather)

It’s fun to hide!

wildflower's avatar

That’s just the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!!

vbarton24's avatar

it feels good because it keeps my ears warm and I can hide

WOW. Thanks so much for that link, breedmitch! I am going to use that for my next gig. I think that I will accompany myself on the ukulele for that one though.

That is the one of the best things the internet has to offer.

I don’t really like wearing my hood because I feel like I can’t hear anything, Im weird like that…...
I will usually only put it on if there are bee’s or flying bugs around, or if I’m walking somewhere with spider webs, my boyfriend got bit by a black widow that dropped down on him in the garage so now I’m super paranoid it will happen to me LOL

You’re welcome, banjo. I wish I could take credit for it, but my friend Laura sends it to a bunch of us every six months or so just to brighten our days.

ChrisClustered's avatar
