The Clemstead

A place heavy with history and screaming for new thoughts.

Mag 33: Eau de Raid

“Good Lord what is going on downstairs?
[Sniff, sniff, sniff]
Boys, what’s that smell?
Answer me and stop the glares!
Someone had better answer. Well?”

“Is it coming from a spill?

Is it coming from outside?
[Sniff, cough, sniff]
Is it coming from a landfill?
Answer me or I’ll tan your hide.”

“It saturates the air;

it clogs my nose.
Was this done on a dare?
[Cough, sniff, cough]
It closes my throat.”

“You sprayed it in the hall?!

You sprayed it in every room?!”
“Daddy got it from the mall,”
they squeaked, “It's his perfume.”
[Cough, cough, cough]

Haha! Fun read! This reminds me of the time my daughter sprayed cologne on the walls of her newly painted bedroom because she didn't like the smell of the new paint!

How fun... trying on so many at the same time is why I rarely use any today... such fun memories.

Very cute. Made me laugh and I just love anything that makes me smile.

Mine is up.

Fun read and good advice! The olfactory nerve saturates very quickly. If you can smell your own perfume 2 minutes after spraying, you're wearing much too much!

About Me

My photo
I come from German (Mennonite/Brethren) stock with bits of Norse, Celtic, Native American, and some mysterious unknown combination from an adopted grandparent. Not an uncommon blend for most of us who settled early in Pennsylvania. This type of diverse heritage left me ripe for the genealogical bug. I make a pilgrimage once a month and attempt to trace all the branches of my family tree. Unearthing facts that were never documented previously always brings excitement.
