Why does my work area smell like an Abercrombie store?

Here's a fun Ginny fact: I don't like perfume. I rarely wear it and if I do I only wear a little. Most perfumes make me nauseous and give me a headache. I guess this is an improvement from my childhood when I'd break out in hives just being in the same area as someone wearing perfume. I still can't go near bubble bath.

While dutifully working at my desk I noticed that it smelled like an Abercrombie store. You know what those stores smell like - a perfume and cologne explosion. The smell that emanates from that store makes me gag, so I certainly don't want to be smelling it while trying to work.

I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. I don't have perfume in my purse and there's no one that sits close enough to me where it would be that strong. I start looking around the floor area of my desk and that's when I see it, a scented diffuser sitting in its box on its side. Sure enough when I picked it up it was leaking and now my work area smells like an Abercrombie store.

It's really fun trying to get your work done when you feel gagging. I should have given away that diffuser months ago.

This blog post is kind of lame I realize but it was either that or my dream about being carried in a coffin with Gandalf WHO WAS NOT DEAD.


  1. OKay, well that seems like a total tease. Let's hear about Gandalf!

    On another note, your office seems to smell better than mine. By office, I mean my living room, since that is where my job hunt is taking place. Miles my youngest pup has been puking ALL day. So it smells like wonderful puppy/dog puke. :-/

  2. Glad to hear you have weird dreams too. I had a dream the other night that aliens had set up a food tasting booth at some kind of fair. When you tasted the food though, they were actually drugging you. They then hooked you up to some kind of device that makes your brain solve difficult problems. Apparently they were altruistic aliens though because they would then harvest the solutions you came up with and planned to share them with everyone in the universe.

    1. This sounds like a screen play in the making Charlie

  3. Do you know why those stores stink? Because they pay employees to spray their perfumes throughout the store. The last time (key word LAST) I walked into Hollister, I got sprayed in the face with perfume.
