Mae borke the heel on her new boots on a sidewalk. She took a taxi to the hospital and they cut her foot open to fix her boot. The boots cost two-hundred dollars, she told them, but they didn’t care, they fixed thos e boots like they were fixing their momma breakfast.
Of course this would happen. That’s life. The boots, they are tough but her foot. That just made her put her feet up and take an aspirin. She wasn’t a smoker, but she used to be.
