Friends, I am still out of commission. I recovered from my bug only to suffer the worst allergy attack I've experienced in months. Earlier in the day I thought I might recover, but I found myself requiring a second dose of antihistamine and a long nap. Sadly, my nose is still tender, and I dare not tickle it or taunt it with anything. I had planned a little rose showdown between Hermes Hermessence Rose Ikebana and Bond No. 9 Bryant Park, but it will have to wait until my nose recovers.
I can share with you, though, Bob's impressions upon being offered each wrist just after perfume application: "That one smells like Kool Aid. That one doesn't smell like Kool Aid."
I'll leave you to guess which is which. I hope you all are having a lovely week so far!
