She put on boots and I laughed

I remember a time in college when a friend of mine came in to town for a visit. As a joke, she put on the ugliest pair of boots. The boots went up to her knees and they were hairy. Of course I laughed. My friend wanted to see people's reactions and decided to walk around town in them. The stares she got was priceless. I still laugh thinking about it. This painting tells the story about these ugly boots my friend wore.
