Ah, Those Smells

I was out for a brisk walk this morning and as I cut through the parking lot of the private school nearby, and passed employees just arriving and walking to their building, the thought that floated through my mind was "I miss working in an office or a building where people arrive smelling of fresh soap and cologne. I miss people having that bit of purpose in their step." Even my office when I'm working isn't like that. I have to go back too many years to relive that memory.

I wonder if men wear cologne anymore. There's enough of it sold, but I never notice anyone wearing it. Maybe I'm just not around men who do. Maybe it's a young thing. Maybe young men in heat wear it. Maybe men don't know the power they wield in a very small bottle.

OH my, AXE body spray is alive and well in our house. I think men and boys alike still use cologne! Although perhaps not as consistently as it should be used. I was thinking similar thoughts recently when I showed up at the elementary school office all stinky and disheveled and saw all the women working there that had obviously gotten up early, showered and dressed in nice, clean clothes. I don't really miss it though. I think about it.
