My Rubber Booted Experiences
My family moved to the country when I was 9 years old. When I went to school I was mesmerized by the boys who wore their rubber boots all day in class. The most popular style was black with red trim. I would sit in class and stare at their rubber booted feet. I remember that on a warm day I could smell the rubber from their boots. At the time I didn't own rubber boots, but began to persuade my parents that I needed a pair. When i finally got a pair, then i joined the crowd and wore them all day every day as well. That lasted til high school where boots were not permitted. As soon as I went to university, though, i was back in those rubber boots all day every day. Now i wear mostly hip rubber boots and spend several hours in them almost everyday. I don't feel "normal" without my rubber boots on. Uniroyal hip rubber boots on - black with yellow trim - as I write this.
