Monday Memories: Morning Glory
One morning, I had a twitter rant about some smelly person on the bus or train. This sparked my sister-in-law to tweet me to spray some Morning Glory. I burst into laughter and only she and I would be able to laugh at this. See, back when I first met my hubby, I hung out with his sister a lot. We would sometimes be on the subway and encounter a very nasty smell. Me, with no shame at all, would immediately spray my purse-size Calgon Morning Glory body mist. This was my go-to perfume, as well as an air freshener on public transportation.
Just today, there was some disgusting smell from when we moved some office furniture around. The stench almost made me puke. I then proceeded to use some air freshener I found lying around, plus some Lysol disinfecting spray. This totally pissed off many people in my office, especially my boss (who was appalled and gave me crap when I told her that I Lysol the soles of my shoes when I get home - she says it contains too many chemicals - but there's so much disgusting stuff on the sidewalks). I don't care if it bothered everyone, at least I prevented them from smelling that combination of crap, barf and stinky feet. They will thank me one day.
Yes, I am that person who will do anything to mask nasty odors. I will use body spray, hair spray, hand cream, anything I can get my hands on to get rid of the smell. So, when my sister-in-law, brought up Morning Glory, I just had to giggle remembering the times I would spray the body mist all around the subway.
