[ boots ]

Jet has very cool boots. I asked him where he had gotten them, and he said that they were custom made. They took a mold of his foot to make them, and they're the most comfortable shoes he's ever worn. He paid $500 for them.

I said that if I was going to pay $500 for boots, it had better feel like someone is sucking on my toes the whole time I'm wearing them.

He allowed as how they feel good, but not quite that good.

Once Sarah asked if I'd really want boots that felt like someone was sucking on my toes. I said that, upon further reflection, I don't think I'd be able to walk in such boots.
