Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

Python cowboy boots

He's a regular at the coffee shop, always conservatively dressed. We nod and share the Wall Street Journal. Today he was wearing cowboy boots, a huge step away from his usual attire, so I just had to ask. Turns out his company was sending him to Texas a while back, for what I've forgotten, or maybe he didn't say. So he went on e-Bay and ordered "some costumes" because they were to dress appropriately. He'd taken quite a liking to the boots and bought four pair.

"Are you sure they call them costumes in Texas?" I asked.
