Christian Louboutin Fernando Sandals For the Tuesday

Manolo says, it is Tuesday, and you are back at your desk, the glorious summer of 2010 proceeding without you. But, not to worry, you have had the sufficient dosage of summer over this past holiday weekend to hold you for many days to come.

It was not the undercooked hot dogs, nor the overripe potato salad, but the near drowning incident that perhaps has soured you on the entire Fun In The Sun™ enterprise.

But the less said of that, the better.

All you choose to remember is the image of your husband pulling your teenaged son back into the boat by the hair, slapping him on the back as he coughed up water, and saying, “that was fun, wasn’t it?”

And your son, your lovely, sweet boy, not only agreed to this maniacal proposition of fun-ness (fun-hood, fun-osity?) , not only agreed, but wanted to get back on the inner-tube as soon as possible.

“This time,” he said, spitting up the algae, “I think I can get more air if you go a little faster, Dad.”

Aaaarrrrrregggggghh!

And then you remember, it is after the Day of Memorialization, you can wear the white shoes!

    Manolo, I adore you and your writing, but ‘fun’ is already a noun. :) As for white shoes, a wise man once told us that we could wear white shoes year-round. Hm… he slips my mind for the moment. Who WAS that great liberator?

    Many thanks for the correction. Fun-osity is not the word.

    Yes, it is true. With regard to the white shoes, the Manolo believes that one should not be limited by the calendar. The true test is appropriateness.

    What exactly is the rationale behind this peculiar American habit of only wearing white shoes after Memorial Day? I mean, obviously they are difficult to keep clean, so one doesn’t wish to wear them in mud, but mud can be after Memorial Day, and sun and dry can be before it. And in several of the States it is always warm and dry and mud is not an issue anyway.

    I think it’s that the Americans also perfected marketing, and this enables them to sell twice as many shoes; one set in white, one in navy.
