My Boots Are Sacred.

So, I just got this new pair of boots. They were a gift from my mother. They were on sale. They're black, knee high, with laces, a rounded toe, and zippers up the sides. And I confess that as a fashion addict, I am just tickled that we are teetering on the edge of boot season. Oh, yes. I love my boots.

So I decided, today, to bust them out early. A maiden voyage, if you will. I step out onto the street and pause at a stoplight and BAM! two seconds go by:

"You gonna FUCK ME with those boots later?"

After I shook my head and thought - here we go, I suddenly became furious b/c I had to wait there next to him for the stupid light to change, and so I waited and waited and finally yelled:

"Not in your goddamn pathetic lifetime!!"

as soon as the cross walk illuminated, and then I hurried across the street. I turned back once, and he was still standing there, gaping after me.
