So, I don’t really want to be a cowboy, but my dear brother-in-law (TG’s brother), The Older Brother, is in town for the holiday weekend, and he professed his desire to be a cowboy after he and his then-wife saw Brokeback Mountain. Okay, stop sniggering. I’m sure he just really likes cowboy boots.
Honestly though, that’s not the only time he’s been excited about the prospect of cowboy fashion. The Older Brother is a huge Red Dead Redemption fan. After the original hype of the game, he was even more stoked to pre-order once the clerk told him that pre-orders came with a cowboy outfit — so excited, in fact, that he texted to let us know.
Two weeks later he texted again, this time totally disappointed to find that the pre-order outfit was for his character to wear, not for him.
