One of those posts that goes nowhere.
If there is one (pointless) thing that rubs me up the wrong way, it's unpolished boots. I have to keep my boots polished – it's not a fetish, I was never in the army, and the rest of my uniform is can only be called clean in a charitable sense.
But why did I buy some another tin of polish when I had bought some a week ago and have hardly used it?
Maybe it is becoming a fetish…
