It smells ... or it stinks. Is there a difference?

The Roo-girl: What's that SMELL?

Evil Mother: Huh? I don't smell anything.

TRG: It's like cologne or perfume or something.

Carpool Girl: Oh. It's probably me.

TRG: What are you wearing?

CPG: Stella McCartney.

TRG: Yeah, but what's it called?

CPG: Stella McCartney.

TRG: Oh. I really like Princess ... or Daisy.

EM: *feels like she is in the middle of magazine with scratch-n-sniff inserts*

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

CPG: Oh, I LOVE this song!! I know all the words. *starts singing along to prove it*

TRG: Oh, me too. *joins in*

EM: *knowing that TRG listens to country music, but believing that CPG never would* How do you know this song? How do you know Carrie Underwood? Do you listen to country music?

CPG: Oh, ew, NO! I can't STAND country music.

*silence while car radio blares a Keith Urban song*

CPG: Like that. It's so whiney. I can't stand it. It stinks.

EM: Oh.

CPG: Although I have always wanted a Tennessee accent. Ever since I was little.

EM: Uh ...

CPG: Yeah, my mom thinks it's creepy, too.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Update on the CPG situation: She has been absolutely perfect ever since I posted about her rudeness. I am such a wuss that I have to wait for her to transgress again before I can say something. Sigh.

Hey, I wear Princess!!! Vera Wang, right? Tell Roo I love her even more now!

And Thing 1 and 2 both love Daisy. Got it for Christmas and they won't even let me TRY it! Selfish little shits...

See now you made me want to go and sniff stuff. That's weird.

Never even heard of Princess or Daisy. Man, am I ever out of the loop. (Personally, I only wear Oscar De La Renta.)

(Country music ROCKS!)

Weeeelll...Keith Urban is a tad whiney, and that from someone who likes country music. That latest song--something about "I won't say I told you so, but I told you so"--drives me batty. It makes me want to smack him. I liked some of his earlier songs better.

I flip around between stations a lot and I've noticed that certain country singers are sometimes played on the pop stations. One of the very few Tim McGraw songs I can't listen to is that one he did with Nelly. (Yes, I had to look it up to be sure.) Of all cross over songs, this one disturbs me the most. Every time I hear it, I think, "Not you too, Tim! Not like this!" Otherwise I love Tim McGraw.

Na adores Carrie Underwood.

Perfume makes me sneeze.

I should write something on my own blog instead of posting loooong comments on other folks'. Nah.

I HAVE a Tennessee accent. It's not a selling point, believe me. I have taken classes to get rid of it. And I don't like country music. I grew up in Nashville (familiarity breeds contempt, etc.). Classic rock such as Led Zeppelin; Moody Blues; Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, etc.

Kaytabug said...

Oh hon' you are just like me, not being able to get on someone about something if they aren't doing it anymore.

Never heard of any of those perfumes.I haven't bought perfume in years!I still have over half of a bottle of something green..armani something.

What a pain in the arse.

I love country music. From now on, when she's in the car, I'd blare it. ;)

I've worn the same perfume for years as I read if you develop a signature scent it worked like a pheremone.

Doesn't like country music but wants a TN accent? That's just nutty.

Just this one time I'm happy I have a son. Although the cologne of a boy may render my nose dead one of these days.

Pamela said...

she reads your blog... that must be it.

Joy T. said...

I must have missed the post on the rude carpooler before but just went and read it and glad it worked itself out. Otherwise it would be one warning and then tossing her ass if the warning wasn't heeded. But I'm mean like that :o)
