Random Thought No. 354 - Smelling Pretty

You know, I just love how everything smells pretty nowadays--from body lotion and shampoo to garbage bags and dish soap. When I go shopping it takes 5 minute just to open the lids of each product, get a whiff, and decide which I like the best.

Growing up, I remember that cleaners had 3 scents--ammonia, bleach, and Pine-sol. Lotion was either eau de baby or eau de Grandma's house. But now there are whole shops devoted to smelling pretty with scents like lime verbena, vanilla bean, and pear glace. Sigh! I love capitalism.
