Manolo the Columnist: Temptation from Circa Joan and David

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

Dear Manolo,

I’m working in a job that pays me far too little with far too little personal satisfaction, and while I know that in this economy I should be thankful to even have a job, I’m still dissatisfied. I’m especially unhappy that I can’t afford to wear better shoes to work. Please help me find something that’s both good-looking and affordable.


Manolo says, oh how the Manolo empathizes with his friend’s situation, for the Manolo himself has been more than once stuck in the menial job, laboring like the monkey for the handful of peanuts.

As the Manolo always recommends, you should save up your moneys so as to afford the truly super fantastic shoes, as few things feel as good as wearing amazing shoes.

But the Manolo also knows exactly what it is like to be poor, so poor that you must fashion your own super fantastic shoes out of dented hubcaps and pieces of rubber tire that you have gathered from along the verge of the highway and glued together with your own salty bitter tears.

Look, here is the Temptation from Circa Joan and David, the kitten-heeled pointy-toed pump that would look very smart at work for not too much moneys.
