Christian Louboutin Ronfifi Corset Boots For the Monday

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are happy to report that your Mother’s Day was not unpleasant.

Your children took time out from their very busy schedule of digital communication to present you with the bouquet of flowers and the card, and to accompany you to the brunch at that Italian place you like. What was truly sweet, however, was that during your celebratory brunch, they had the great good courtesy to keep their cellphones in their laps. It was so wonderful! Whenever you looked down the table you could even pretend they were praying, their heads bowed, their thumbs furiously working at perhaps their rosaries.

Less satisfying, was the appearance of your mother-in-law, Blanche, and her “old man” Jimmy, who were also present at the meal.

Blanche is the wonderful mother-in-law, the sort who is sensible enough to help when needed, but also sensible enough to keep out of your business when not. However, what is troubling, is that she appears to have dealt with widowhood by joining the motorcycle gang.

“They’re not a motorcycle gang,” answers Gary when you mentioned your fears to him last night

“Yeah, but what about his beard?,” you snap back, “and those awful biker outfits?”

“Jimmy’s alright. The dude looks like Santa Claus.”

“I’m not sure. He seems a little rough to me.” The image of two, stout, elderly people in matching red leather jackets and chaps, eating eggs benedict, still lingers.

“He’s a retired endocrinologist,” says Gary, “They ride a Honda Goldwing for criminy’s sake.”

But you are not placated. You are worried for Blanche’s safety, and perhaps more than the little bit jealous that she seems to be having so much fun on the other side of seventy, heading off to Big Sur while you are still chained to your desk.

What is needed now are boots!

Christian Louboutin Ronfifi Corset Boot

Look! It is the Christian Louboutin Ronfifi Corset Boots!

The exact sort of boots you would wear on the back of the giant motorcycle being piloted down the scenic coastal highway by Gary, except in this fantasy, Gary looks exactly like the young Lorenzo Lamas.

    Wonderful, but the link doesn’t take us to the boots – just goes to Saks home page.

  3. bearing Says:

    Manolo, you made this Catholic mom’s day with that paragraph about the cell phones. Srsly.

  4. raincoaster Says:

    I dunno. If I thought my teenagers’ hands were in their laps, fingers and thumbs furiously working away, I’d be HAPPY if it was just texting.

  5. jessielou Says:

  6. Lisa Says:

    I appear to be married, in fact, to the wonderful and entirely unflappable, except when it comes to his roasted turkey, Gary.

  7. Lisa Says:

    oh, and yeah. I teach classes full of ungrads who try to spend the entire class with their hands in their laps poking and poking away. It’s most disheartening.

  8. Athena Says:

    Wonderful, Manolo!

  9. Eilish Says:

    Oh! How did I miss this on monday? Laughed so hard. I think I might have a little Internet crush on Gary, though. Is that wrong?
