Hahaha! If you’ve heard the story of how I became a boot maker, you know that Jay Griffith–the first boot maker I worked for–was a grumpy old alcoholic who used to scream and cuss at his employees, which terrified me. I found out today from one of those employees that I had a nickname: 96 Tears. They called me 96 Tears because I’d get all quiet and turn red and go cry in the bathroom.
