Here's the thing: I am a total whore for clearance sales. It so doesn't matter what it is, or whether or not I "need" it...if you mark that sucker down at least 75%, chances are, I'll buy it. So last July-ish, I went into Bath & Body Works and they had these tubs, like literal tubs, of generic stuff that was on sale super clearance-y cheap. I ended up buying about 10 of those Wallflower refill thingies that you plug into the wall and they make your apartment smell less like your boyfriend and your cat and more like a fresh spring meadow or like...coconut. You know?
Well, I always forget to replace them so they sit there empty burning energy or whatever they do until one day Jeff decides to be a good little wife and switch them out. It's nice to come home to a new smell, and I enjoy it thoroughly. But now we're at the bottom of the barrel, so to speak, when it comes to selection. I don't mind my house smelling like laundry or fruit or something, but what did I walk into Friday nite after a long snacky day at work? Cake! Caramel Cake!
I got my hopes all up!
"Hey honey...you makin' a cake?!"
"I smell cake."
"...it's caramel cake. oh, air fresheners."
UGH. What a letdown. I so wanted cake. I've been wanting cake all damn weekend now. Not cool, B&BW. How am I supposed to not eat cake for the next 45-60 days until this stupid scent wears out? I wanna go buy a different scent, but I promised I wouldn't spend money until we get back from our trip ARGH! What are they thinking making candles and air fresheners and shit that smells so much like real food? I need like, a brocolli candle or something. Anything to make me want something green. Where are you on that one, scent makers? From now on, I at least READ the name of a scent before I buy it.
Now I gotta go run 50 errands since I didn't have a car all weekend. Sharing a car totally sucks! Here's hoping I don't drive past a conveniently-placed bakery...
