Love Is All Around

This Thursday rant is brought to you by Tuesday:

Stop dousing your whole fucking bodies in colognes and perfumes in lieu of bathing. I don't have a sensitivity to fragrances, but I do to assholishness.

I hate people who smell like beef jerky, fermented raisins or beer soaked sweat... if perfume can cover that shit up then by all means go for it. But I am in high favor of the traditional bath and deordorant dusting. care to climb in the tub with me Dale??? you sound like you need some relaxation, and some nookie......

Sorry, I can't resist ... have you heard R.E.M.'s cover of "Love Is All Around," with Mike Mills singing lead?

i work with a lady who bathes in peppermint and cedar oil, making everyone in the office want to kill themselves.

you know hates a strong word but shes got me so close to usin it just for funkiness.

I HATE fake smells. And I hate overpowering smells. And I really hate fake, overpowering smells.

I will rush in my classroom and throw uopen the windows dramatically, gasping for breath the whole time if one of my students has coated themselves in body spray. Axe in particular makes me want to vomit.

To me, the worst is patchouli oil. It's too musky and not for the daytime work hours (if ever).

Coaster Punchman said...

If it makes you feel any better, around mid-morning today I realized I forgot to put on anti-perspirant. Good thing I'm not very musky smelling.

Saviour Onassis said...

Geez! Sorry....

I'll go shower right now.

Once in awhile I like to put on perfume, but I do it resonably. Some people seem to have drop the whole bottle on theirself. If i can smell you from across the room, it's too much. And if you go at a public place, like an hospital or a school, don't wear perfume, exept the smell of your deodorant!!

Dale said...

The only thing worse than the smell of beef jerky is wet beef jerky but I'm in.

You do love it don't you Gretta? You're so sick.

Never resist. I'm thinking I have but it could just be me imagining him singing it because I can Beth.

Fill her with linens n things, she sounds like my mother's hope chest Yas.

I bet the looks on the kids' faces are as priceless as your dramatic entrances Lulu. Axe is of evil, is that what you mean?

Patchouli is fine if you're banging Madonna that one time in the back of her limo but otherwise, you're right Chelene.

It makes me feel better that I'm hundreds of miles away and it was only breezy today CP.

Saviour, you're a fine but mildly fragrant gentleman.

Word, Jill.

At work, I sometimes follow a person's scent and let them know that's how I found them!

Dale said...

Can I get a ah ahchoo. You're terrible Old Lady but that's why I love you.

A lot of people I know have allergic reactions to artificial scents. Perhaps the offenders in your life will read this and simply wear B.O. instead.

Dale said...

Then there's the B.O. problem. What a bunch of ridiculous people huh?

My favorite comment in response to my over-doused (11th grade) students is "it smells like a middle-school dance in here." The other day I said it, all the girls laughed, and the boys didn't get it. Guess it's hard to smell oneself.

Dale said...

That's very funny Wonderturtle. Boys know nothing until they're about 42 and then they still don't know a damned thing.

It's all true Tumuli!
