Whew, I almost blew it! I got up, got out of bed, got changed and immediately headed off to work (I was running late and needed time to get food before my shift). I had forgotten all about SSD. In my car I sprayed on some Gucci Envy, as it was the "spare" I kept in my car in case I didn't put anything on before I left the house. About half way to work, I was thinking, "Crap! It's Bulgari Black day!" It was too late, there was no turning back (I would have if I had more time!), and I'd have to live with the Envy until I got home... fortunately it was only a 5 hour shift.
At work, I kept my nose open for Black, but to no avail. In a college town, all you get is Axe, Fierce, AdG, or Code. Boring. In a cruel twist of fate, I was twice complemented for smelling good, even though I couldn't wait to wash the Envy from my skin and put my Black on.
So I make it home and lay down for a nap as I had only slept 3 hours the night before (yay insomnia!). I got up, showered (using my Axe Kilo body wash as its scent most closely goes with Black), and attempted to apply a liberal dose from the "hockey puck." For all the complaints I've heard, I've never had a problem with my sprayer... until today. It wouldn't turn to its "on" position, and after some rigging with my needle nose pliers, I got it to "on" and sprayed away. Mmm... that unique rubbery vanilla aroma surrounded me in its warm, glowing aura.
I was going to go shoot some pool at my favorite bar, so I figured I'd be pretty casual... of course, "casual" for me means "eclectic" or "weird" to others. I went with white jeans, a black and white Affliction tee with some red accents, black and white Puma shoes with red stitching and lace accents, and a dark grey and white Puma velour track jacket [ducking for cover... but trust me, I can pull it off]. I figured the Black would go with all the white... and I was feeling pretty grey overall (recent breakup after being used by a girl... etc.).
Well, pool went pretty well (break-and-runs always feel good), and I got one good complement on my scent and a few good smiles from some of the girls there. Overall, not bad, but I wish I could have enjoyed the Black all day long. Oh well, hopefully there's another SSD soon (why not make this a monthly or bi-monthly thing?), and hopefully that time I'll be able to get a full day's wearing out of it!
