What is the world coming to? How many smells do we have to have? Do our homes smell THAT bad? I have a neighbor who asks me to pick up her mail when she and her family go out of town. I usually take it inside and leave it on the counter and then feed her fish. This is a home that is very well kept and clean YET, the smell of PugIns is so strong that it hurts my nose and throat whenever I go in there. I don't know how the family survives in there! You can almost taste it in the air!
I got on this kick tonight because while I was relaxing on the couch mulling over curriculum and this weekend's workshops I saw an ad for Glad PlugIns. Not only is it smelly but now it has a LIGHT! YIPPEE!! A smelly light show!
To top it off, I'd really like to know who in the world wrote that juvenile rendition of the PlugIn jingle?
Freshness day and night
Freshness with a light
Plug it in, plug it in.
WooHoo!! That deserves a standing ovation! I wonder how much money this person is making? Maybe I could get that job?
One day the kids and I and another homeschooling family were out and about and decided to stop at some local food joint to eat. Before departing, we paused momentarily to use the facilities. While in there, I just happened to be standing under the scent spray thing-a-muh-bob when it decided to squirt it's timely stink bomb right in my hair! I smelled like a bathroom all day! Needless to say... I got a headache from it.
In case anyone is wondering... the best smell a home can have is the smell of food cooking in the kitchen when you walk in the door. Who can deny the comfort that overcomes you when you encounter such a lovely aroma? Home can be a great place.
