a ton of rice fell out.
Like, probably a cup full of uncooked rice.
How did this happen? Was it some sort of weird joke? Why just the left boot? It really freaked me out, I thought they were bugs or something.
I left the dejected rice all over the living room floor as a testament to an odd morning. And I will not clean it up until one of my roomates fesses up to planting it in my boot. Otherwise, I will have to accept the fact that maybe a mouse was using one of my boots for food storage. Ewwww.
My search for "rice boots" brought up this picture:
and also lots of pictures of our former Secretary of State in stylish shoes.
