Okay. So, I like good-smellin’ stuff as much as the next gal.
Perfume – check.
Incense – check, as long as it’s Nag Champa.
Cookies baking in an oven – check.
Men’s cologne – check, check, check! As long as it’s not Brut.
If you remember the 70’s, you remember Brut.
Air fresheners? Not so much.
And the latest insurgence of Glade, Renuzit & others is permeating the air in Mom’s house this morning.
She has this ‘thing’ about odors.
Meet Miss Thing.
So cute, I did her portrait a few years back.
(I never miss an opportunity to share my artwork. Sorry.)
Sadie is a tiny boston terrier, even by boston terrier standards.
She weighs 11 pounds.
Who would think such an odor can come out of such a tiny thing.
And when I say ‘odor,’ I’m being kind. Really kind.
Miss Thing has tummy issues.
Special dog food. Very. Expensive. dog food.
Still – Stinky. Very. Stinky.
So Mom sees a TV commercial for this –
A motion-sensor air freshener.
You walk by – it squirts.
You open a door – it squirts.
You just think about the dang thing – it squirts.
I couldn’t take it. I turned it around so the sensor was against the wall.
I moved it into the laundry room, next to the garage.
Every time I come home – it squirts.
My sinuses couldn’t take any more. Just when I was going to take the batteries out, Mom moved it into her bathroom.
It still stinks. It’s permeating the walls, I believe.
You’ve been warned.
About motion-sensor air fresheners. Not Bostons.
