He had come to visit just for the weekend. I mean, it was San Francisco. He was on vacation and looking for fun. He eagerly unpacked his bag to show me its contents. It was a little like a clown car because it seemed like no matter how many boots he pulled from his bag, more boots kept coming out. He had already shown me his new shiny 13 hole London Underground boots.
He was enthusiastic in a way that only someone in their 20s can be enthusiastic. Did I tell you that I like boots, he said. I am soooo into boots. I mean it. Like, I really really really like boots. At that very moment, he was beautiful in a way that only someone in their 20s can be beautiful
