Manolo says, ayyyy! It is Julianne Moore and her prosthetic hump!
Manolo says, the Manolo’s shoe-obsessed friend Wayne poses the qustion.
Since you happen to have a well-read blog by American women, I have a question I’d like to put to your readers:
If you’ve looked at TV the past few weeks, there’s a commercial running for a jewelry store (yes, it’s THAT time of the season) where a man is painting his wife’s/girlfriend’s/fiancee’s toenails, and asks (I can’t quote the ad verbatim), “How do they look?”…His woman replies, “They look fine”, to which he answers, “I think they need another coat.” A voiceover says, “Because you’re not THAT GUY, there’s Helzberg Diamonds.”
QUESTION: Would a woman rather have THAT GUY, or the diamonds?
And here, through the magic of YouTube is the commercial in question…
So, dear readers, satisfy the Wayne’s (and the Manolo’s) curiosity: That guy or the diamonds?
Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
I’m currently in my final year of dental school and next year I’m going to be a dental resident. I am doing my first grown-up job interview in an uber-conservative field at a fairly conservative hospital. What shoes should I wear?
Manolo says, the Manolo has often thought about how difficult it would be to be the dentist, having to spend all day with your hands in other peoples mouths, repeating the mantras “wider please” and “this may sting the little bit”. Few of your customers are happy to see you, everyone thinks you are boring, and people are always spitting around you..
On the plus side, like the college professor, you get to carry on mostly one-sided conversations with people who would rather be anywhere else.
By the way, the Manolo is worried up by his friend’s use of the phrase “conservative dentist,” which conjures up in the Manolo’s mind the image of Lawrence Oliver, holding the pair of pliers, while standing over Dustin Hoffman in the movie Marathon Man.
In any event, the Manolo would recommend for his friend the Scorpio from Oh Deer shoes as being the reasonably priced, professional shoe with the little bit of flair.
