So, the supervisors at work have asked us to not wear perfume or cologne to work since apparently there is someone in the building who is allergic to it.
I am not allergic to it, however, and feel it violates the freedom on my olfactory senses to take this pleasure away. I'm cool with not wearing perfume. I'm even cooler with not wearing cologne. I can understand that it is a health issue for one or more of my fellow employees. But my nose, she really likes perfume.
My nose's favorite perfume is Sarah Jessica Parker's fragrance, Lovely. I LOVE it. I cannot get enough of it. I saw her on Leno one night promoting it, and that made me notice it when I saw a sample in a magazine. After I had sampled it, I had to have it. There are not many material goods in this world I just have to have. Just a good pair of flip-flops, a cold soda, and a good book. But anyway, Dave bought me some for one of our anniversaries and I was a pretty happy camper until it ran out. That's right, I used the entire bottle, every last drop.
The thing I like about perfume in general is that you can be fat, you can be ugly, you can be mean or selfish or stubborn, unkind to animals, a bad mother, an alcoholic, or have crusty lesions all over your body and people will still like you if you smell good. But likewise, you can be the nicest person in the world and if you smell bad, people have to work much harder to overlook that and like you anyway. You're saying, "No way," but you know I'm right.
So, I'm sitting at work last night and this girl sits down next to me and she is wearing this smells-so-good-you-want-to-drink-it fragrance. I am 105% sure she is wearing Lovely. Well, you can't lean over and say, "Seriously, I love the way you smell. Thanks for wearing that perfume; you made my whole day," but you want to.
And that's it. I know you're expecting more, but that's it. There was just this girl, and she was wearing Lovely, and I really liked it.
