Back when I was a kid, your mother wears combat boots, was the insult du jour.
Nowadays, if your mother wears combat boots it's pretty damn cool. Especially if she actually wears them in combat. Our brave military men and women are what stand between us and annihilation. They are the iron shield which protect our inalienable rights. They even go so far as to help procure the freedoms of others in oppressed countries. They are heroes in the truest sense of the word. So having a mom who wears combat boots is something in which one ought to take great pride.
So if your mom, does, in fact wear combat boots, say it loud! Say it proud!
MY MOTHER WEARS COMBAT BOOTS! God bless her for it!
