And yes, a lot of them do wear cowboy boots, because you think NORMAL rattlesnake bites are bad? Hell no, you are not wearing sneakers or dress shoes outside, you will fall into a cactus and get yerself stung by something ungodly and unnamable.
And who the hell is going to wear a ROBE out there in the August 104 degree heat? No way. Jeans will do fine, we don’t gotta be fancy here.
And there’s that one professor with the coyote tattoo that you swear watches you even when she’s distracted.
