    Cool a kitchen boy yanked on his knee-high boot

    Given this sentence:

    He pointed his toe as a kitchen boy yanked on his knee-high boot.

    Please, do you find any sense in this sentence. WHat does "pointing your toe" have to do with a "kitchen boy yanking on his knee-high boot"?

    Thanks a lot

    Re: a kitchen boy yanked on his knee-high boot

    I presume the kitchen boy is helping the person by pulling (yanking) his boots on, and the person is moving his foot to get the fit write. If you think of very long boots, you pull them up and then get your foot down to the end.
