Violet Weston:
I ever tell you the story of Raymond Qualls? Not much story to it. Boy I had a crush on when I was thirteen or so. Rough-looking boy, beat-up Levis, messy hair. Terrible underbite. But he had these beautiful cowboy boots, shiny chocolate leather. He was so proud of those boots, you could tell, way he'd strut around, all arms and elbows, puffed up and cocksure. I decided I needed to get a girly pair of those same boots and I convinced myself he'd ask me to go steady. He'd see me in those boots and say "Now there's the gal for me." Found the boots in a window downtown and just went crazy: praying for those boots, rehearsing the conversation I'd have with Raymond when he saw me in my boots. Must've asked my momma a hundred times if I could get those boots. "What do you want for Christmas, Vi?" "Momma, I'll give all of it up just for those boots." Bargaining, you know? She started dropping hints about a package under the tree she had wrapped up, about the size of a boot box, nice wrapping paper. "Now, Vi, don't you cheat and look in there before Christmas morning." Little smile on her face. Christmas morning, I was up like a shot, boy, under the tree, tearing open that box. There was a pair of boots, all right... men's work boots, holes in the toes, chewed up laces, caked in mud and dog shit. Lord, my momma laughed for days.

Transcript:
the story of Raymond Quails?
That's the boy I had a crush on
when I was 13 or so.
Rough-looking boy,
beat-up jeans and...
messy hair.
Terrible under-bite.
But he had the most beautiful
pair of cowboy boots,
shiny chocolate leather.
[sniffs] Mmm.
He was so proud of those boots.
You could tell the way
he'd just strut around,
all arms and elbows, you know,
all puffed up and cocksure.
And I, I convinced myself
that I needed to get
a girly pair of those boots.
And... I was sure, if I did that,
that he would ask
me to go steady.
You know, he'd see me in the boots,
and he'd just say,
"That's the gal for me."
[chuckles]
Oh, gosh.
Yeah.
Oh, so I found the boots
in a window downtown.
And I just... I just went crazy
praying for those boots
and I'm rehearsing the conversation
that I would have with
Raymond when, uh,
when he saw me in the boots and...
Oh, I must've asked my mama
a hundred times
if I could just get those boots.
"Vi, what do you want for Christmas?"
"Mama, I'd give it all up
just to have those boots."
You know, bargaining.
So she started laying little
hints around about a box.
[whispering] There was
a package under the tree
she had wrapped up
about the size of a boot box,
real nice wrapping paper.
"Now, Vi, don't you cheat
and don't you go in there
before Christmas morning."
You know, with a little smile
on her face.
So Christmas morning,
I was up like a shot, boy,
under that tree.
I was tearing that paper.
And...
[chuckles]
...there were boots in there.
Men's work boots.
Holes in the toes and
chewed-up, uh, laces
and, uh, caked in mud...
caked in mud and dog shit.
You... [scoffs]
Lord.
My mama laughed
about that for days.
Please don't tell me
that's the end of the story.
Oh. [exhales]
No, that...
[Karen chuckles]
That's, that's the end.
You never got the boots?
No.
Uh-uh.
My mama was a mean,
nasty, mean old lady.
[door opens, closes]
I suppose that's where I get it from.
You're not nasty and mean.
You're our mother, and we love you.
[Violet] Oh.
