Tuesday 9/28/10 - "IRRESISTIBLE" - A Magpie Tale




A MAGPIE TALE

"IRRESISTIBLE"


She was a person who didn't normally like scents on men. She liked a man's smell to be "au naturel". She thought their colognes often smelled too sweet, too much like machine oil or just plain "too too" something......

One day she found herself in a local art gallery strolling slowly by each painting. As she stood in front of one near the end of the furthest aisle she noticed herself sniffing, smelling the air. There was a pleasing, appealing aroma near her. It caught her fancy.

Without turning her head, she peeked out the corner of her eye. Just to her right and slightly behind her stood a tall, dark and handsome man. Being uncharacteristically bold she turned and asked, "What is that exotic scent?"

As the words left her mouth she remembered from her youth the ad slogan: "YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL AN AQUA VELVA MAN". (She didn't like the smell of Aqua Velva.)

He replied in a smooth, low voice, "Acqua Di Parma". Then he added, "Just for you".

I remember Aqua Velva. I would rather smell like motor oil I think.
