Manolo the Columnist: Ripple Metallic Sandals from Jimmy Choo

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

What would you recommend for the junior associate at a law firm in the District to make her feel better about her life choices during those 10 or so hours a week when she’s not breaking her back at work? You know, something fun and feminine that reminds her that she’s not just a paperwork machine?


Manolo says, unfortunately, the life of the junior lawyer is not as glamorous as the various television courtroom dramas have led us to believe.

Instead of the tense cross-examination of hostile witness, complete with the frequent shouting of the word “Objection!,” most young lawyers spend their days and nights searching stacks of obtuse legal documents for the stray commas.

It is the tediously boring, labor-intensive work, which must be performed with great accuracy, as the other side will have their own army of young lawyers doing exactly the same thing.

Indeed, the work is so demanding and the pressure so intense that one associate in California recently died at her desk from exhaustion, overworked by the demands of her job.

At the least, the job is moderately well-paid, even if one has little time to spend the paycheck, which is why the Manolo recommends the Ripple Metallic Leather Sandals from the Jimmy Choo. Beautiful and elegant, these shoes are too fancy to wear to work, which is the whole point, yes?

    How can comments from different people both bizarrely and ignorantly use the single article before a plural noun?

  5. Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

    The first comment was left by the Romanian fashion blogger. The second two were likely left by the non-native English speakers hired to leave semi-spamish comments for various commercial websites. (The Manolo has stripped out the links and left the comments in these cases, thus neutering the intent.)

    This sort of human-generated comment spam is becoming increasingly common.

  6. Athena Says:

    The link to this might have been forwarded to people (whether friends or not) whose first language is not English. How nice that the Manolo is entertaining more than those of us who pride ourselves on our English grammar :-)

  7. raincoaster Says:

    FINALLY some nice, low-heeled shoes. I’m a little (no, very) tired of shoes that are suitable only for walking from the sedan chair to the throne and back.

  8. megaera Says:

    True, although I must admit to a certain longing for the day when I walk from the sedan chair to the throne and back. As life goals go, I’ve heard worse.
