Something in the air...

The women at my work are a smelly bunch.

Our receptionist smells like "old lady" - it's like a mixture of formaldehyde and "White Shoulders." The other receptionist/assistant/file clerk/professional-National-Inquirer-reader smells like whatever scent is newest from Bath & Body Works - she's always lathering it on and mixing scents seems to be what she likes to do. Walking by her desk, I get a headache. One of the other sales people smells like cigarettes and sunflower seeds, and the only other female who works in the office (besides me) seems to smell of baby barf from time to time. The girl that helps out in the warehouse? She smells like dirty pennies.

What?!? I'm just saying.

And in case you're wondering...I, of course, always smell spring time fresh.

Did you have biology with Ms. kitchens? She always smelled like formaldehyde (as she would, being the biology teacher and all..). BUT her scent was especially strong because she would pull whatever starfish or monkey butt we were disecting that day out of the formaldehyde with her fingers, then would lick her fingers, as teachers often do when passing out papers, to hand us a lab paper.

I also think she glowed in the dark..

Is it bad that I read dirty pennies as dirty penises? LOL

My 4th grade teacher was Mrs. Kitchens, but I think that it was a different Kitchens.

In any event it TOTALLY creeped me out when teachers licked their papers - that meant that I had their SPIT on my paper! Ew! It's like PRISON!

Also, Mike - you CRACK me up. You clearly have junk on the brain. :)

Hey Mike, I read the same thing the first time through. Great minds think alike... or is it great minds are dirty? Dirty minds are great? Great penises are dirty? I don't know what's wrong with me.

I still think I smell like teen spirit. And the count is "three" that read dirty penises.

You know, the sad thing is that I'm pretty sure she's had many dirty penises around her.

What? It's the TRUTH!

And Ginger, the last line of your comment was so funny that the tea I was drinking almost came out my nose. I'm going to assume that it's your unborn fetus making you think like that.
