My best friend when I was 7 wore a pair of cowboy boots to school one day. Unusual for a 7-year-old in a tropical Caribbean island. So old boy looked way out of place clip-clopping around the playground. Trying to kick a ball and such. And yet I remember feeling like he was the coolest kid on earth that day. He wore frigging cowboy boots! That was some TV show shit!

I was not difficult to impress as a child.
