now that the miners are safely out, and the media are intent on spoiling everything, i did tell you so, i can relax back into my trite observations.
is it that they make a different sound on the footpath?
do i walk differently?
i know i'm taller but really; what's the big deal with the boots?
i bought some new boots. they are brown. they have a beautiful heel.
today i went up the street to have lunch with a girlfriend. i seemed to get so many looks, from the old dude hanging near the rsl to the tradey crossing the pedestrian lights, and then from all types in between.
it's like for some men
somehow becomes this
which clearly is an announcement that i am about to break into this
in the middle of the street.
yesterday when i mentioned to my honey i'd bought new boots (expecting him to gulp and ask how much) he merely made a noise like a little baby lion growl.
what is it about boots?
