Like an orange on a toothpick.

You've been so patient.  Really.  And you're all winners in my book.  Except that there can only be two actual winners.  Don't feel bad.  I still love you.

The My Head Is So Big It Has Thrown My Spine Out of Alignment Award goes to:  Jason Riley, or, as Amy likes to call him in blog comments, "My Husband."  Like she's one of Those Girls. =)

The My Head is So Small That My Kids' Hats Are Too Big for It Award goes to:  Heather Livingston.

I find it very interesting that both people live here in the Hub with me.  I wonder if Flo would let us have a Las Brisas Head-Measuring-a-Palooza.

I'm giving Honorable Mention to Andrea for being the only one to send me a picture.  She was so dedicated to this competition that she took it with her camera phone and used her tool box measuring tape to do it.  Kudos to you.

To see where you fit in with the rest of the participants, have a look:

Jason  25 inches
Gina - 24.5 (Founding Member of the Two Foot Club)
Angela - 23.5
Mom - 23.5
Amanda - 23
Chris - 23 (I'm pretty sure marrying into the family made it bigger)
Karina - 23 (proving that it's not just the Knecht side of my family with large heads)
Lisa - 23
Jennette - 22.5
Jessica Gold Brown - 22.5
Sara - 22.5
Laura - 22.25
Andrea - 21.5
Liz L. - 21.5
Courtney - 21.25
Rac - 21.25
Heather L. - 20

Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun.  You'll be blessed.  I'm not sure how.  Maybe someday you'll find the Perfect Hat.  You may be surprised to know that my Perfect Hat would have to include a stuffed bird on it.

I'll take those kudos! I'm turning bright red right now as I type!!! I think this was all a ploy, everyone else was in on it too and that's why there are no other pictures. Well congratulations everyone, you were all successful, I am 100% embarrassed!

Rachel said...

No need to be embarrassed. It just shows that you're a faithful, wonderful and adorable friend who is willing to have fun. I don't know what that says about everyone else (eyeing you all suspiciously).

Rac said...

When I take a picture of myself I always end up with three chins. So Rachel, you can just imagine how I looked while measuring my head.

Amanda said...

I still remember walking in downtown Claremont and this hat lady was trying to convince me to buy a hat. I didn't want to buy a hat and so I share with her the unfortunate truth that my head is too large for hats. Her response 'I know, I make hats for people with big heads.' Could she really tell just by looking at me that I was in special need of her services. I've never really been embarassed by my enormous head, but I kind of wanted to smack her. Just a little.

Gina said...

I can't believe I was snubbed by Jason by 0.5 inches. I didn't know that he had such a large cabeza. Go ahead, Jason.

Chris wants to know why the rest of the Knecht clan didn't post. Dad would have easily made the top three. Ben could have even landed a top five position.

What a great competition!

Congrats Jason. I can't wait to tell Serge!

Tamar and Trevor said...

So I am way behind on the whole measuring my head but just so you know it is really not a Knecht thing...my head measured in a 23.5 inches. Trevor will not let me measure his but lets just say that it is not small!!! That would explain poor Emma's head.

I am a newcomer to responding to your bloggy-world, but I wanted to be counted. I come in at 23.5. (It's a Conry-family tradition...you should see my daddy's!)
