I can’t abide it when people marinate themselves in perfume or cologne. Recently I had to sit in a doctor’s waiting room near a woman who seemed to have poured a 55 gallon drum of cheap something-or-t’other all over herself, and it did, indeed, make my eyes water. People were getting up and moving away from her, and I sat there hiding behind my crossword puzzle book, choking as quietly as I could. I wanted to turn a fire hose on ’er. The sad thing is she seemed completely oblivious. Feh.
