Game prompt: “You have angered the Texans”


My boss wears them and literally told me it’s the manliest way to look taller.


When i was a kid i was very self conscious about the way the heels of my boots clicked like a ladies heels to the point that i would stomp a bit when i walked the halls in school. Always wanted my boots to make a solid thud like my dads did when i was little now my wife complains that i walk too loudly :DD


Fun fact: Heels were originally worn by men. > High-heeled shoes were first worn in the 10th century as a way to help the Persian cavalry keep their shoes in their stirrups. Since then, men’s heels have gone through varied cultural meanings: symbolizing high social stature, military prowess, refined fashionable taste, and the height of ‘cool’.
