The Unique Blend of Perfumes


Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

My workday was a never-ending cycle of walking through hallways with the smell of perfume… 

Mixed with someone else perfume….

And fecal particles, all wafting around.

I despise the feminine practice of spraying makeshift air fresheners after relieving oneself of their burden; it is disgusting. 

If you are reading this and are guilty, please stop. 

Other than that, I cannot even remember my work day. I think I have PTSD. 

When I got home, I planted pumpkins. As the surrounding area is heavily mulched, I am hoping if they sprout too soon, there will be a little buffer. 

Here in Colorado Springs, we have to wait until after Mother’s Day to plant most crops. 

I am burnt out and tired. Have a splendid, unscented day.

    Scented candles, too — lit or not — hours upon hours. 🤢 (Maybe hell offers a round-the-clock *blend*..I try to behave!) Mostly, our planting zone is 6a, so I think we’re behind yours. Good luck with the pumpkins!

    Sorry, can’t comply. I can, hoever, make sure the spray doesn’t get on my clothes!

    Well, brother
    having worked many, many, many flights both domestic and international I can assure you this is a practice not limited to women.
    Hope you have a better day tomorrow.

    Most perfumes and air fresheners make me sneeze so I avoid them. I like scented candles but I don’t light them. I still get the scent but not as strong.

    Getting in an elevator where someone is wearing heavy perfume is nauseating.

    Have a great day!

    That is a nasty practice and then when I’m around that person and they are wearing that scent I associate it back…
    If your pumpkins do well I might be able to use what I thought was a totally useless phrase I learned, “que pasa calabaza”

    I am sorry to come to know about your burnt out. I prayed for our Lord rewrite your brianwave, wipe out any past trauma and fill you with hope. Will be praying for you and your household. 💚🙏🌱
