Today was a really busy day at the salon. I had no lunch and I was booked every 15 minutes due to walk in’s. I hope my tip jar has enough for the new shoes I want. I mean a girl has to have a different pair for every out fit. Ok so I am a shoe freak! I like different styles to go with different occasions, for example: I like open toes for summer,or sandles. Not just any flip flops, I like a little bit of class with a nice pedicure for my toes! Sometimes I like a pop of bling to dress up my feet. Depends on your style that day and weather. It also depends on season. If I am going out to the club I like over the top sexy! They can be taller and more busy! Some are just a work of art! You have to buy them! Like these sexy heals I am saving for. Shimmery gold leopard print with a pinkish tan base. The heal is a perfect three inch height, gold and thin, pointed toe to add a little sexiness to the style. Oh this will look so good with my new pinkish tan pencil dress. It fits tight and complements my curves. A round toe would be to cute and I want sexy! A little gold bracelet with big gold hoops and a tinny gold necklace would be just the right accessories. The cut is low showing a lot of cleavage...well I can’t help that I am big busted. I need those shoes to go with it! $200 is the amount I need. I look in my jar and count the days tips. Thirty dollars...that’s it? Well it is the end of the month so people must have other things to pay for. I see a walk in, a man after hours, that I will take. I hope he tips good. I won’t get paid my hourly wage if I do. My boss wants me to leave right at 6. But I will take him. After I cut his hair he left me a $5 bill as a tip. Ok so I got $35 today extra. I’ll just save some more to get those shoes. I put my bill in my jar and eat in the back, my lunch that is now supper. I clean up and now I am closing. I forgot I needed to buy cat food so I reach in my jar to take out $25. What! there is only five $5 bills. What happened to the other ten dollars?
