I water a lot at work, so my feet are always wet. It kind of puts a damper on things If you will excuse the pun. So I wear rubber boots to water in, and believe me it's a sight. But I hate working all day with wet feet.
I've always wanted to be a "real gardener", one who dresses in the hunter green shirts, with the khaki shorts, and heavy socks, in leather boots.
The kind that has the well used secateurs in their back pocket. Who doesn't seem to feel the rain trickling down the back of their neck, or the hot sun burning their nose a shade of red, that would flatter only a beet.
But somehow comfort, and convenience beat out, real gardenerism.
I try to finish the watering as soon as I can, so I can slip back into my comfortable shoes, and stop the " thawk, thawk, thawk ", noises that rubber boots make when my skinny legs walk in them.
Besides, I am tired of all the customers laughing at me.
