My Daughter Wears Combat Boots

My daughter has been leaning toward this neo-Goth look for awhile now, and I was explaining to her I knew a little about the "OG" (Original Goth, I claimed) having had the movement as I understand it mutate from Punk and get its footing in the 80s. So I introduced her to Robert Smith, Siouxsie, Concrete Blonde's Bloodletting, and Carter Burwell's score to the first Twilight. Yeah, I totally threw that last one in.

Then I gave her my combat boots. Not my jungle ones, the original leather they gave us during basic training. She loves them. And I was surprised to find the toes still had a hint of a shine on them after all these years. Surprisingly, at 11-years old, they fit her. I have tiny feet.
