|Oh, the Persistence of Some Things.

Some things are hard to get rid of. They just seem to stick, keep showing up, reminding of you....|
Like an ex. Well, no, that was a cheap shot. Although the day after Thanksgiving, when I was sitting at the table between my ex and my current...that's it, just the three of us, I thought "Damn, did I just make a big ol' Thanksgiving dinner for..."
But that's not my focus in this post. No, this is about Bounce fabric softener sheets. See, it's the season of the static and I can't use the de-static sprays, so I'm stuck with the tried and true, just wipe down your hose or inside of coat or whatever with a fabric softener sheet.
And I'm not a big fan of artificial scents or strong scents of any kind, but Bounce is just a smell I'm used to. So I carried a small pack into work on Monday. In my briefcase. I took the box right out of my briefcase when I got to work. It is now Wednesday. Everything in my briefcase STILL smells like Bounce. The apple I had for snack. The cans of soda I brought in today. Any piece of paper, of course, goes without saying.
But I just licked a stamp and it tasted like....Bounce.
I have now drank half a diet mountain dew (from a non-infected source) and my mouth STILL tastes Bounce.
I am the Lady MacBeth of Fabric Softeners...
