Say Bruh shout to u ladies at my work constantly ordering high heels online and having them delivered to yo office because u ain't got a doorman at home Jesus Christ mama your office look like a cot damn warehouse explosion, just Nordstroms boxes and tape and tissue paper everywhere what the fuck u do with these shoes mama? Like for real how many pair high heels does a working girl need? My favorite is the mamas tho. They done gave up on shoes. They got a baby now. That Swedish stroller alone cost two racks. And her feet swollen, her back hurt, and her titties sore. Nah. See that's the difference. A working single girl with no babies? She getting shipments every day like she Pablo. These new moms? One pair of Tory Burch flats and she good. She done had another human chew on each titty BEFORE work that morning before even opening her cot damn email. She use to wake up next to skrangers from tinder sneak out hit the gym do soul cycle hit Starbucks and show up at work refreshed freshly piped down legs sore from the bike everything now her titties leaking actual milk while she type emails so it's like, fuck some new heels - the 76 pairs I already own are enuf.
