It is a VERY small world..... Great blog post!
Glad to see you still posting, Jaime. I miss your erudite comments in the main boards.
Kool Blog post :-)
Thank you for this delightful read!
Well, thanks, indeed, that's very educating. I had a feeling somehow it would relate to wine just as now, or after the nespresso machines, some wine terminology is being used refering to coffee as well. Just a question, by any chance, do you think Creed would make a mistake writing its own address on a bottle? Thank you.
This person who shall henceforth be known as; Bubble Boy, is without a doubt a control freak. And I say it's 'War'! He (or she) has no right to object to such a faint odor unless it causes that person immediate respiratory distress. In that case, one wonders, as you say, how they can even get along in the real world anyway? I would ignore these complaints. You should complain of his breath.
This is very interesting, I am new to reading here (so much later in December 2013, haha!) and was wondering about this as well so I'm really glad you posted it for me to reach back and find.
Very educational. I once came across a Judge as logical and merciless as Piso.
First I'm looking at "the dresser-top collection," and then onto "the bookshelf collection." I am speechless! I am without speech.
Absolutely LOVED this, lol!
I like ROtto's theory, but I suspect Orgoglio italianO's theory is probably the more likely.
I think somebody is just being an ass... If you stopped wearing fragrance on Sunday and you smell frags on other people even after you stopped they still complain. I think it's just that person just being difficult for some reason. It was nice of you to even do that most people would have ignored it and said tough. It was nice of you :-)
I just get the feeling this person has some kind of weird make it difficult for you syndrome for some reason. You did a good deed to please someone because of their problem (so called). I say tough Cannoli to that person. Their just being ridiculous
Have you ever seen Todd Haynes's movie "Safe"?
Since there is a strong link between fragrance and memory, perhaps you once wore something the person couldn't stand, and now everytime that person sees you, they "smell" that fragrance.
I wouldn't go out of my way to harm or unnecessarily provoke this person. What I might well do is continue to use my usual soaps and other personal care products and eliminate or drastically tone down the amount and style of scent I use to the point where it might just smell like soap, and perpetrate a pious fiction by saying I am using nothing at all. If what the others are using can’t be detected, then I should be safe doing this. I'm not out to punish this person, just to protect myself from an intrusion into my most personal choices and habits, within reason.
By the way, I already use unscented deodorant and shaving products; my haircare stuff is routine, and only very lightly scented. The shower gel is use is the only moderately scented thing, and that mostly washes off my body...
The choir director sets the rules for the choir. Many that I know about ban fragrances. Your choir or your choir director is more liberal than those. I hope the new person doesn't ruin it for everyone.
I think you have gone well beyond what is required and should quietly let the entire choir know about the requests. I sense it is actually something else. You have been way too honest and kind. Don't admit to bathing. . Suggest they see a doctor for their imagined sensitivity. How close are they to you in choir? Wear your most civet-y sent in the side closest to them.
