Aaron has adopted a retro 80's prep look for the summer. He bought pastel shorts, light weight sweaters and finished them off with a pair of plaid Ralph Lauren boat shoes. He's looking very dapper, light and summery.
He also bought a couple of pairs of Tom's shoes, the company who provides a pair a shoes for every pair sold to a child in need. Originally the company offered a simple slip on, kind of like the ones worn in the Disney animated feature Aladdin. Aaron opted for their new offering, a full lace up w/ rubber sole.
I caught a whiff of these suckers fresh out of the box, I was in heaven. That new glue scent screamed through my nasal passage like an adrenaline rush. I kept huffing that new glue sensation over and over until aaron walked back into the room, preventing an explanation of why I had his new shoes up my nose.
I imagine it is similar to that new car scent people all rave about, I absolutely love new car smell. My local car wash facility offers a few spritz of new car smell for a $1. I tried it but realized its not the same. Bummer
Am I a Junkie!? There are several scents out there that I am beginning to enjoy as mid life gets a strangle hold of me. Skunk, gasoline, the under belly of a goat. Its crazy how my scent tastes have changed since I was a kid
I've been told that my nose and ears will continue to grow as I get older, perhaps that's the reason for my ever expanding appreciation of odor. Hopefully before retirement age I will be able to appreciated the odors I come across on my morning commute, this public transit scene I endure every morning smells like the wrong end of a Rhino.
