I has new boots
And then, DH and I went for lunch at the deli in the chichi neighborhood. As we were standing in line, waiting for a table to clear, a couple of ladies came in and showed their new purchases to the waitress. (her mom and sis-in-law it turns out) and the boots were cute and OMG cheap and the shop was just down the block. The waitress had called everyone she knew. After lunch, DH and I sauntered on to this tiny shop and wedged our way in and my boots were there! For - can you believe it - $30! I've seen similar boots (in earlier decades) for ten times that. I snapped them up! And I also picked up a pair of shorter boots with buckles and straps on them for $20. I know these aren't made in America. I doubt they're even real leather. (DH says they're ratskin) They probably won't stand up to a year's hard wear. But - but- but - they are a fantasy I've had for fifty years. And don't they look hot? I can totally ROCK these boots! I will look for excuses to wear them. I am jazzed beyond words. I has new boots!
