Gabby made fun of me mercilessly. "Air? What does Air even smell like? What if it is the air over a chicken farm? What will it smell like then?" But I stuck to my guns. And I spent $15 on a bottle of laundry detergent.
And yes, it is fairly awesome. I don't know if it is $15 worth of awesome because you can buy a fairly good bottle of wine for $15 and that would probably make me happier in the long run. But being able to just pump out the stuff and not having to measure is definitely cool. And the bottle is small and not unwieldy so there is much less in the trash. And it doesn't smell like the air over a chicken farm.
Another purchase I made that fine day was a bottle of Downy Simple Pleasures fabric softener in Spice Blossom Dare. Isn't that the most idiotic name for a fabric softener that you have ever heard? What is it "daring" me to do? Write a sexually charged blog post about doing my laundry? Because BOO-YA DOWNY. I'M ALREADY THERE. It also made me think of Virginia Dare, who was the first English baby born in the New World and part of the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island. And yes, I'm cool like that.
And now folks let me tell you the main reason I am writing this post. When you combine these two things together, the scent is OUT OF CONTROL. It is so good. Like slap your mama good. Like I wash my laundry and need a cigarette good. In fact, let me lay it out math-style for all you back to school'ers out there:
Method Laundry detergent + Downy Spice Blossom Dare = candy + sex + new shoes + new movie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Liev Shrieber as pastry chefs who save the world
And in other news, I'm afraid I need to get out more.
