One of dressy's key "icebreakers" it seems, is asking the driver, "How do you like my boots?" Followed by the shoving of a large queensized high-heeled boot through the little, and hopefully open, window in the partition. And since we had just come from The Filthy Old Cock, the sole must have been pretty! I have seen the boot/shoe technique work to great effect before-- by Joey Arias, no less.
And no, dressy, I didn't get him. A little too wide for me, and as you know I rarely cross the Himalayas!
