A Note to Fellow Shoppers

Please people, please. Before you leave your house to shop or do anything in public, actually, would you refrain from wearing spicy, heavy perfume and cologne? I can smell you the minute you step out your front door. And the fragrance lingers in my nose minutes after we part ways.

I just can’t take it. Really. You make me sneeze. Save the perfume for your sweetie in the bedroom, but leave it off if you’re headed to Michael’s or the Dollar Tree.

Pregnant, nauseous women; migraine sufferers; and I thank you.
