eau de pug

In high school my perfumes of choice were CK's Eternity and Tommy Girl.

Oh how the high school hallways reeked of Tommy fragrance and ignorance.

I can still smell it now.

This weekend while taking a phone call pug secretly pulled out a magazine from the recycling bin, hid from my view and decided it would suffice his boredom to rip it to pieces. That dog must be entertained 24/7 I tell you. So, as I'm on the phone I'm thinking pug's gnawing on a toy (mistake number one he never does what he should be) when instead he's doing a little recycling of his own.

When I hang up the phone and plop back on the couch pug appears next to me and I find myself exclaiming, "My, you smell fantastic!"

And then I rewind what just came out of my mouth and say "Wait, why do you smell so good?". And my investigation quickly leads me to the magazine behind the sofa and a half eaten Eternity sample insert. With a proud pug displaying his destruction work.

I have to say though, he worked that fragrance.

Oh pug, I'm surprised your mommy hasn't gone completely crazy by now. I still can't forget the sight (and sound) of him practically soaring through the door that connects your kitchen with your dining room.

LOL. My mom and I were perfume shopping (more like sniffing) this weekend and she just couldn't understand why Davidoff Cool Water is not my favorite any more like it was in 8th grade!

OMG I died laughing reading this!! My pug loves to dig dryer sheets out of the trash and chew/suck on those. She will then come and sit on my lap and smell like clean laundry. Weirdo...
