January 18, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes boots. Whose boots are they, where do they go and what is their significance? Go where the prompt leads.

“You look like you’re going out riding,” A woman in church wear with short grey hair chuckled.

“I’ve been on a horse 6 times in my life,” I replied.

“Then why are you wearing that?” she smirked

“It’s 50 degrees in Florida.  I’m cold. When you’re cold, you wear boots. If I walked down the street wearing a bustle and long dress, I’d deserve to be laughed at.  But if a woman wore that on that same street 120 years ago,” I said, pointing at her dress, “She’d be hauled off to the nearest institution for the feeble minded.”
