this is pretty simple. Waterproof (for
washing) earphone speakers concealed in
the rim of a toque. the cord comes out the
back and plugs into whatever you'd like it
to. created out of vexation that my
headphones don't fit snug and
compromise the warth of my toque when I

||Well, I've not seen the term "toque" applied to much besides those tall, white, vaquely mushroom-shaped hats that chefs wear.
||I know that some old-style women's hats, usually white also, were called toques but that use is fairly obsolete.
||Also, the expression "warth" is not one I've ever encountered however from the context I assume it is somewhat equivalent to "insulation" or "insulative quality."

beanies in the states. Cat burgulars
wear them. sometimes they have a

cat burgulars forgo the stupid bobble.
||Ah, a stocking cap! (I think of beanies as being a hat shaped like a yarmulke only a bit bigger).
||This kind of "toque" is a canadian thing. (see link)
||they're called ear buds...
||matter of preference. I hate ear buds.
they never seem to sit right, and the
past couple times I've worn them in a
toque it drives the bud painfully into my
ear. (personally, I've never heard the
chef's hat called a toque, but oh well)
