I don't know how it happened.

After hearing some statistic from a friend that Atlanta gets more rain per year than Seattle, I gave myself permission to buy new rain boots. I had grown tired of my wellies (they are too cumbersome to me) and wanted my old ones again. The boots I wore when I mucked out horse stalls as a teen. I did not realize that they were back in fashion and backordered until three years from now. But mine had arrived and I put them on, because it was Atlanta and it was raining.

Then I put on my leggings because anytime I wear elastic waist pants is a happier time for me.

And it was chilly. So I stopped at Starbucks, which was inside the grocery store where I was shopping. I wanted a hot black tea, mainly to hold because it was chilly, and sometimes to sip.

That's how it happened. I was grocery shopping in my LL Bean boots, leggings, and a little red Starbucks cup.

I was a basic bitch.
