Yesterday I saw not one but two men wearing cowboy hats. Usual if you're in Texas, not so common in Massachusetts. What's more, both seemed to be self-made men.
The first was a 20-something white man walking a toy poodle while playing a ukulele. This was on a fairly busy residential street.
The second was a 40-something African American man wearing a blue short-sleeved button-down shirt, khaki shorts and low Italian style boots. He looked happy. He was leaving the supermarket, so maybe he just used a bunch of coupons.
I swear, I'm not making this up.
