The winged hat worn by the ancient Greek god Hermes (or, in Roman mythology, Mercury) was called a “petasos.”

Dan was watching me type the sentence above and he said, “I knew that.” ??????? Who knows that? And why?

And is it worth 3 cents? Perhaps I should cancel my “Fact of the Day” subscription and just have Dan share random, useless tidbits upon request. I’d pay him 2 cents. After all, there should be a spousal discount of some sort.
