Sample text

Non suderò, con questo tailleur. Per la prima volta da quando lavoro da Harrods arriverò a fine giornata senza diventare lucida come una palla da biliardo. Con lo sconto costa 150 sterline. È un investimento. È una necessità. È la mia uniforme. Posso pagarlo con la carta di credito. Appallottolo il vecchio tailleur e lo ficco in borsa. Lascio indosso il completo di Jaeger, faccio una serie di contorsioni per staccare l’etichetta del prezzo e vado a pagare in cassa. Dovrei fermarmi. Ho un tailleur nuovo, uno splendido tailleur nuovo.

Esclamo. «Perché dovrei andare da qualche parte? » I suoi occhi chiari trasmettono sconcerto. Lo sa. Lo sa! Sudo freddo. Urgono misure drastiche. In un ufficio pieno di uomini c’è una sola cosa da fare, la stessa scusa che per quattro anni di scuola mi ha esentata dall’educazione fisica: «Scusami, ho il ciclo». » strepita lui turandosi le orecchie. Fuggo in bagno. Dallo specchio mi fissa una versione di me stessa truccata di tutto punto, con una camicia bianca, nuovi pantaloni a sigaretta neri di Topshop e i miei tronchetti di Gucci.

Un tempio dello stile: il paradiso della borsetta. Finora ho puntato troppo in basso, con le mie penne alla fragola: ora sì che ho raggiunto il vero nirvana dello shopping. Accarezzo il morbido cuoio di una minaudière di Lulu Guinness sagomata a forma di labbra scarlatte. Aprendo la silenziosa chiusura a scatto trovo il cartellino con il prezzo: è più del mio affitto mensile. La poso subito. 55 bianca e nera in agnello matelassé. Ho guardato abbastanza puntate di Sex and the City per conoscere il valore di ciò che vedo.
