For those of you who don't know me that well yet, I have horrendous vision. Like can't-see-the-big-E-on-the-eye-chart bad. (Fortunately this means I never lose my glasses, as they are always within arm's reach of where I fell asleep...) So to compensate for this faulty faculty (in some odd way) I instead have this thing about smells. For instance, the random shower gel that my husband bought at the grocery store unfortunately (VERY unfortunately) smells exactly like the floor cleaner that I used extensively for those memorable two weeks when our dog had uncontrollable diarrhea, four years ago. Four. Years. Ago. Yeah, its a gift.
So my latest smell-o-venture also involves the shower. (Odd, that.) I recently bought some organic herbal shampoo. Save the world! Clean your hair! But, of course, forgot to giver 'er the old sniff test there in the organic toiletries aisle. So I toddle home, grab the random generic Citrus Lift conditioner from the back of the linen cabinet and blithely proceed to mix the most offensive mane miasma imaginable. Organic herbal rosemary shampoo + sweet pink Citrus Lift conditioner = gag inducing cranial cloud o' fruit flavored cat antibiotic. You know, like that stuff I had to forcibly administer down the Molly Maw while her neck abscess drained four months ago. Exact smell clone! Don't even get me started on why anyone would flavor a cat antibiotic with fruit flavors... (But would fish flavor smell any better?)
Note to self: Buy different shampoo. A.S.A.P.
