Maury Velvet and Metallic Sandals from Jimmy Choo for the Monday

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back at your desk, regretting that you agreed to go to lunch with your office mate Nina.

The problem with the Nina, and what makes her your mortal frenemy, is not that she is the bad person, but rather that she is both the devoted long-distance runner and the vegan, things about which she never stops talking.

What this means in the practical terms is that your lunch will begin with the self-righteous commentary on the menu choices at the TGI Fridays, followed shortly by the lengthy negotiations with the waitress over the order.

“Can you keep the Parmesan cheese out of the Caesar Salad? Wait, do you use real anchovies? You do? Then, can I have the Santa Fe Chicken Salad without the chicken, and hold the cheese on that? Also, can you give me extra black beans on that… wait, does that chipolte dressing have cream in it?”

After the food is ordered (and your waitress has silently resolved to spit in Nina’s iced tea) you will be treated to the blow-by-the-blow description of how Nina began the morning at 5:30AM with the eight mile run, which is part of her training regime for the series of ultra marathons. Afterwards, Nina will treat you to the brief disquisition on the topic “Sugar Equals Murder”.

Ugh. Just thinking about what awaits you at the lunch time makes you depressed.

You know what is needed now to cheer you up? Cinnabon! and Shoes!

    You forgot about the 10 min lecture on the intelligence and cleverness of Nina’s children, the 5 min discourse on the adorability and faithfulness of the Nina’s new puppy, the 8 min rumination upon the enthusiasm for and the expense of the new boat Nina’s new husband may buy for the vacation home, and the 12 min explanation of the thought process behind scheduling next summer’s family vacation in Paris.

    I work with Nina. And not even those shoes will help.

    Marvel, I feel your pain. I too have worked with a Nina, and she was the boss’s daughter. There is a special corner in hell for Nina-The-Boss’s-Daughter.

    Real anchovies are a test of character.

    I just like the fact that the shoes are rich in leather, and probably include a healthy dose of silk velvet, to boot.

    Those shoes will haunt my dreams. They will dance in front of me as I open my wallet only to hear crickets chirping. Do I
