It's Wednesday, which means only one thing. Yes, only ONE. It's Pieces of Wisdom day, and this Wednesday we are covering the deep and sophisticated scents you all wore in high school.
Couldn't I have picked a day that wasn't as hard to write as "Wednesday"? Couldn't I have had Pieces of Wisdom Sunday? But no.
For those of us hoping Chris Hansen would come in and ask for some sweet tea and put us on Dateline, we wore Love's Baby Soft. I totally wore this and sadly still have some. I bought it to be funny but sometimes I put it on. Because I am odd.
We also wore Love's Fresh Lemon, and I was among you, apparently being the Love's people's target demographic. I remember wearing the perfume and also some lemon shampoo, and some guy in homeroom saying, "What smells like lemons?" and being traumatized and never wearing Love's Fresh Lemon again.
Wore that, too. What was my problem? Pick a scent. Geez.
A lot of you said Skin, and do you know Sarah Jessica Parker still wears this? I mean, she probably claims she wears her actual perfume made by her now, but till she made that crappy stuff she always swore she wore Skin Musk. It made me like her even more, that she wore $10 drug store perfume.
So there you go. What slayed me is we all wore the same stuff. There were very few outliers. I guess those marketers do their job!
