Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato Patent Leather Pumps For the Day of San Valentine

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, it is the Day of San Valentine and you are back at your desk thinking it is the no big deal. Although, as you say this to yourself, you know perfectly well that if your man fails to come across with the goods this evening the day will end on the note of sourness.

And what are these “goods” of which you speak?

If you were honest with yourself, you would say the absolute best would be the hand-written letter of love, in which your husband of many years produces poetry which will rival that of the Robert Herrick.

But, it seems unlikely that the same man who yesterday changed the oil on your car and then spent six hours on the couch in the basement watching college basketball, would be suddenly graced with greatness by the immortal muses.

Indeed, somewhere in the attic, secreted away in your chest of treasures, reside the examples of Gary’s previous poetic efforts, written when you were both young and in the first flush of love. As you recall, the word “forsooth” figures prominently in them.

And so, as the years have progressed, you have readjusted the definition of the “goods” downward, in inverse proportion to gifts required for the anniversary of the wedding. In anniversary terms, the first year is paper, the fiftieth is gold. In Valentine’s Day terms, the first is florid original poetry hand-written on parchment, the fiftieth is that he remembers your name as he gums his heart-shaped bowl of tapioca.

You are now at the stage midway between these two poles, which means that if Gary wishes to remain in good odor, he will fork over the large card into which he has handwritten the words “I Love You”, along with the box of decent chocolate and/or the bouquet of roses. He will then complete the evening with the dinner at the House of the Outback Steak, where he not wait for dessert to express his undying love to you, but will utter such words no latter than the moment when the remains of the Blooming Onion are cleared away.

And so it is written, and so it shall be.

    Oh, Manolo. The shoes are beautiful, but the sentiments are so sad. (For the record, I would think it was romantic if my husband changed the oil on my car, sparing me from having to bring it in. But Red Lobster and remembering my name? There must be a happy medium.)

  2. Long Island Says:

    I am very happy with my valentines from my husband who I have married to for 27 years. This morning I was awoken with a cup of coffee and a box of hand dipped white and dark chocolate strawberries. It was pleasant lounging in bed eating chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast. However when they were presented to me I did push them around a bit and joking say,”what no diamond.”

  3. Indy Says:

    Twenty-five years of marriage to a sweet, but decidedly unromantic fellow, has led me to this same pass. Oil changes, picking up one’s own dirty socks and a mumbled, “Why dont you go get some spa thing today?” are all his sincere expressions of love. I love him, I can’t help it. I’m foolish like that.

  4. Nancy Says:

    Me: I’m not sure you would like these shoes …
    Him (without looking): I’m quite sure I wouldn’t!!!

    OTOH he does ALL the snow shoveling and has many other excellent qualities. We celebrated our 38th Valentine’s Day today with breakfast out.

  5. The gold digger Says:

    Candy, flowers, card – I can live without those. I have a man who gets up early to shovel so I can go to the gym. Who spends his Sunday afternoon at the hardware store looking for a reading lamp that will provide enough light for my aging eyes. Who works 70 hours a week and travels 50% of the time so I can be a lazy, bon-bon eating lady who lunches. Valentine’s Day is sweet, but the rest of the year is more important.

  6. Victor Says:

    That is a hot, hot staggeringly hot shoe!

    And when the dog freaks out during a thunderstorm and insists on jumping on the bed, jumping off the bed, whining, scratching, panting, and just generally making it impossible to sleep, I take her downstairs and sleep with her on the couch so my sweetie can sleep in the bed.

    Also, lawncare and de-spidering duties.

  7. wildflower Says:

    He shovels so you can go to the gym? Why don’t you just shovel instead of going to the gym? :) It’s awesome on your arms, shoulders, and back, and you’ll breathe in clean, fresh air!

  8. Downunder Sugarglider Says:

    and love goes both ways, and on this one day, Gary can indulge in his Bloomin’ Onion knowing it comes with a blessing of joy for all the other considerations delivered throughout the year. (p.s. the Bloomin’ Onions they do at the “house of the outback steak” are not actually Australian cuisine)

  9. The gold digger Says:

    Wildflower, he is not shoveling alone! I shovel, too, and then I go to the gym. Exercising outdoors when it is 2 below with windchill and when the streets are icy or slushy is not my idea of fun!

  10. wildflower Says:

    Gold Digger: Ah… Are you in one of those regions that got pummeled this winter? I’m not, but I wouldn’t exactly say it’s mild here. It’s about -35 degrees outside now. :)

  11. bookgirl Says:

    haha this is the funniest thing about the card/chocolate/roses holiday i have had the priviledge to read! being single, i had to come across with my own goods :)

  12. The gold digger Says:

    Wildflower, this year hasn’t been as bad as last year in total snow, but we did have the blizzard at the beginning of the month where the post office couldn’t deliver the mail. I live in Milwaukee, so We Do Snow, but 15″ in one night was a little much to get rid of all at once.

    I have some photos here. Our back door was blocked, so we had to dig out way out of the front.

  13. wildflower Says:

    Holy carp! That is some wet, heavy stuff too. Here in the arctic, snow is like powder. You’ll get no more lectures from me about snow shoveling!

  14. Monica Says:

    I love love love these shoes!!! So sexy and classic!

  15. christian louboutin shoes from burlesque Says:

    So why not choose a lower cut empire sexy dress that is embellished with some lace or beads,
