Scent of a Woman #SoCS

Thanks to Linda for another good prompt … smell. ¬†Does not need to be malodorous. ¬†I am enchanted by words. ¬†Malodorous even sounds stinky. ¬†But this is not about that. ¬†Let’s flow¬†shall we? Rules & Ping Back


Do you believe a¬†blind Army officer can tell if a woman is beautiful simply by her smell? In the 1992 movie, a remake of a 1974 Italian film, starring Al Pacino and Chris O’Donnell, that was the case. ¬†Yes, I am where Pony gets it. ¬†His love for all things theatrical.

Anyway keeping with the prompt … smell, the first thing the popped into my head was this movie. ¬†Made me stop and wonder about the role smell plays in attraction.

I remember once back in high school when my friend’s sister’s best friend told her “we are friends because I like the way you smell”. ¬†What the what? ¬†And we laughed but she went on to explain her mom who had gone back to college was researching for a paper and read somewhere that this is true. ¬†Smell plays a role in who we pick to be around in this life.

Humans are animals and like any other animal the senses are keen. ¬†The sense of smell is more base/animal-like to me for some unknown reason. ¬†One may not even realize but I believe it’s true, we are attracted to people (even if just in part) based on their smell.

It’s why I used to like wearing Billy Bob’s shirt after he had it on for a date night. ¬†Back when he still wore cologne and we even had date nights. ¬†(This past year all that’s changed but that topic has nothing to do with smell, so I save it for another day). ¬†Well, except to say, maybe I should start wearing his shirts again. ¬†Scent of a woman, how about scent of a man … MY man??

Gawd, I have lost it. ¬†It’s past my bedtime. ¬†I am exhausted. ¬†This is stream of consciousness after all and I am rambling down the bunny trials.

One more thought before I go. ¬†Have you watched the¬†recent viral video of a dad calming his crying baby¬†down by giving the child his wife’s¬†shirt from the laundry basket? ¬†You have to check this out!¬† Seeing is believing. ¬†Just look at the sweet lil guy.¬†Love !!

As always, more to come.

How Big A Boy Are You?

After Lulu was born, I took a job working nights.  I became daytime nanny and Billy was nighttime nanny.  That way I could stay part-time and we’d save the cost of daycare.    I had just lost my mom after all.  She was our original daytime nanny.  I miss my mommy!!  Especially at times like this.  But this post is about levity so I’ll continue. 

My coworker introduced another coworker (carpool buddy) to the comedy stylings of Roy D Mercer.  We’d listen to these cassettes  on the car rides home.  Yes you read that right!  Cassettes.  It was 1999 after all. Today these gems are on You Tube and converted to CDs.  They’re still just as cheesy as ever.  

I re-discovered Roy when a blogging friend and I commented back and forth about prank calls in the 70s.  Last week at work I listened to these to relieve anxiety of Lulu’s pending surgery.  And I got a lot of work done! Distraction causes focus! Oxymoron alert!   And you see I don’t need no stinking alprazolam.  I just need laughter. Even my physical pain went away.  Laughter.  The best analgesic out there!!

Take a listen.  I hope you enjoy!!
