Marriage 301, Lecture 392: Mutton, lamb, it's all leathah

Me: Should I get these [patent leather cherry red never worn Doc Martens that I saw at the consignment store for $45 after selling some old jewelry for $45 which has got to be A SIGN never mind that I just bought the red cowboy boots last week and I already have hiking boots]?

SH: They look like they're for a - a younger person.

Me: I was sort of thinking that.

SH: Like Cindy [our friends' hip 29 year old daughter].

Me: You're probably right.

SH: They're shoes for people who call everyone "Dude."

Me: You mean PWCED?

SH: That's right.
