Yuck

If there is one thing I cannot abide it has to be when you give someone a nice friendly hug and then you later realize that you smell like their perfume, which you really don't like because it was novel in the 80's but now it's just kind of annoyingly trite. Naturally this always happens within four hours of putting on a fresh shirt, which you now have to wash.

Ladies, if you haven't changed your perfume in 25 years, you probably can't smell it anymore, which is why you are wearing far too much of it, which is why it rubs off on people.

Note to self: Whiff, then decide to hug or not to hug.

Bleah! That happened to me the other night at the theatre. I gave a big ol' hug to someone I hadn't seen in like four months, and then I was COVERED in man-cologne. Yuck, indeed.

My deepest sympathies. Smelling like one wished not to smell like or worse yet, like one ought not to smell, stinks.

Yeah, but what about when one smells like MOJITOS? Woohoo!

I can't believe you'd let a little PERFUME get in the way of a hug!

IF I wanted to smell like "Obsession" I'd go out and get some of the stuff.
