Christian Louboutin for the Monday

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back in the office, where the tension is thicker than the sopa de chicharo and twice as salty.

This destructive uncertainty and madness was not what you expected when you went into the investment banking so many years ago. Indeed, the recruiter at your college assured you that it would be just like sitting under the money tree and waiting for the shower of golden fruits.

But now, ayyyyyy! People are running around like the chickens with the heads taken off, smelling strongly of panic and fallen portfolios.

And you, yourself, you have the terrible insomnia, and spend every free second obsessively flipping through the business news channels, furiously texting rumors back and forth with your co-workers.

Have you heard the latest? The CFO has been placed on the suicide watch. It turns out that when he had prepped at Choate he had mercilessly, ruthlessly, bullied the younger boy, whose name he has just remembered: Ben “Stinky Pinky” Bernanke.

Ayyyy! Disastre!

You need to go immediately to your personal happy thoughts place, full of pastel-colored candy rainbows and chocolate unicorns. And shoes, beautiful expensive wonderful shoes, like these pointy-toed, patent leather boots from Christian Louboutin.

Yes, the purchase of those boots seems impossible, but have faith, the sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar!

    My lust for these boots knows no bounds! Oh! Such indecision! Pay mortgage, get boots, pay mortage, get boots…..

    Every pair of patent leather shoes I’ve had has made me trip. You’re walking along and suddenly one foot gets too close to the other and then……wham! The patents have decided to lock lips and don’t want you to keep walking!

    But, to have patents way up to your knees?!?! A disaster of comedic proportions. Funniest home videos. Get your camcorder out! Auntie will be catapulting through the living room!

    How about “the sum will come out tomorrow,” so I can purchase those lovelies?

    At least you can run around like the rest of the chickens in those kitten heels!

    So cute and sculpted.

    Yikes, I would have to SPEND my bottom dollar to get those. Then what ever would I do when, like Sonya, the boots cause me to trip and drop my latte? *sigh*

    Ahh the Manolo always knows what speaks to a girl’s heart…….the superfantastic shoes (or in this case boots).

    Now THAT’s an investment that will rarely let you down.

    Excellent work, Manolo; grab a slick patent cherry wallet and we’ll be ready to hit the markets.

    Ha Manolo you are so funny. Nothing better to cheer me up on such as miserable day than a shoe fix Who cares about the credit crunch!

    Aaaaieee indeed! There is the more painful truth behind what The Manolo says about the disasters, and the personal choices of those in high places who decide what institution lives and what institution dies.
