Happiness is… (3)

i-f875c0b07d9b3cb6229668554781b35a-alice.jpgHappiness is boots that makes one feel strengthened and tough when one wears them. Even better is wearing boots called “engineer boots” when one is an engineer. And perhaps even better again is that one buys such boots from here but significantly on sale, and for one’s birthday, no less.

    Not enough mud on them yet–
    Just give them some time.

    Now *those* are shoes I can believe in. But then, I always look at footwear through the prism of bog survivability.

    I am extremely jealous of those boots.

    I have a pair of brown leather hiking boots that I miraculously found at a Play it Again Sports when I was a destitute graduate student. They make me feel the same way: strengthened and tough.

    Thanks Alice — now I not only have boot envy, but I’ve got a Billy Joel earworm too. 🙂

    Those boots are borderline erotic. Of course, what would push them over the line is a 3″ heel and teal sequins.
