Manolo says, it is Friday and you are completely ready for the weekend to arrive.
Unlike the other nights of the week, when you must be in the bed by the reasonable hour lest you oversleep your alarm and miss the bus in the morning, you will not be sitting at home on the couch, your face buried in the second-helping of Lean Cuisine fettuccine alfredo watching your long-time imaginary sugar daddy, Mark Harmon, solving the imaginary crimes on the NCIS.
In the stead, shortly after work this afternoon, you will leave your cubicle farm and venture out into the night with the pack of like-minded girlfriends. First, however, you will shuck off your practical work clothing, layer on the makeup, put on the high heels, and shimmy yourself into the too tight dress. And as you stand in front of the mirror, contemplating the final touches, you realize that what you are really needing are the pair of black diamond hoop earrings.That is what is really needed to turn things around, something dramatic and unexpected, not another night out with the same old going-no-where people, dancing with the same old going-no-where men at the same old already-no-where clubs.
And that is when you decide to quit your job, just go in on the Monday morning and tell your boss, Mr. Grozny, “In two weeks, I am outta heah, sucka.”
San Diego has always looked good to you, and you have the cousin out there. Just pack the car and go. It is the American thing to do.
In addition to the new jewelry from TraxNYC you will need new shoes suitable to the climate:
The Cynna from Via Spiga, the pink and yellow flat sandal that will represent for you the break with the past.0
