The short story starts up with three friends Lulu, Spencer and Betty who are out shopping shoes. Lulu who is the main character is trying on some very kinky boots from Manolo Blahnik which she is really excited about. She ends up buying them, even though she is not wearing them until later in the winter when she goes out with Spencer and some of his friends. They go to a bar and here she meets a guy called Charlie. He is Mr. Right; handsome, British, rich and very charming. They start going out and Lulu is very fond of him. Lulu accept Charlie’s offer to be his girlfriend and go meet his parents, though her friend Spencer finds him boring and not fun enough for his best friend. She doesn’t listen to Spencer until she finds more and more things that she dislikes about Charlie. One evening Lulu were ...view middle of the document...
When I read the last line in the story ‘’Are you ready boots’’, that made me believe that she has left him. The story doesn’t exactly say she leaves Charlie. She has a sense of humor when she says to her boot “Start walking.” She likes to go out and have drinks with her (probably gay) friend, Spencer who has a very feminism personality.
Spencer and Charlie are the two men in the short story. Spencer is gay and he is one of Lulus best friends. Lulu and Spencer can talk about everything; he is very open to Lulu and tells her when there is something wrong. Charlie is the perfect man according to Lulu because he is a rich man with expensive cars. Charlie and Spencer are completely opposites of each other. Spencer is someone who is funny, and outgoing who likes to joke around and hang out with his friends. Charlie however is an upper class bore who makes formal jokes he has heard and memorized.
When you meet someone for the first time a person’s clothing and appearance is always the first thing you notice. It is something natural everyone does. But is it right to judge a book by its cover? Of course not. We human forget sometimes that people shouldn't be judged by how they look but be judged by their actions. We cannot judged people by what they appear like to you at first, it is necessary for us to get to know them and "read" them before you can judge them. Such as if someone wears something scary or funny and you don't know them you shouldn't make fun of them because they could turn out to be the nicest person you ever met. You can have doubts about not having the same opinions, but you can never know for a fact if you like the person before you talk to them get to know them. My point is there will always be someone who will judge others by their clothing but people shouldn’t stop wearing what they like because of what other people think about them.
