“A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.”
~ Coco Chanel
Sitting at my desk, I asked one of the officers to review a background check I was running for him. As I reached for the file I was suddenly arrested by a sound of heavy sniffing behind me. Puzzled, I turned around and found him with an embarrassed look on his face.
“Sorry,” he said, “I just caught of a whiff of your perfume. It smells really nice.”
I felt my eyebrows lifting. “Ah. Thank you. But-”
“That was more than a little awkward, huh?”
“Let’s never speak of this again,” he said firmly.
“Sorry, I fully intend to tell the ladies, which pretty much guarantees you’ll be hearing about this for a couple of weeks at least.”
Yes, awkward, but really funny if you know the man, and not nearly on the creep scale of this guy.
*For the record, she-minions, Chanel. The classics (apparently) never go out of style.
