I can think of several reasons to pinch my nose lately.
A dead skunk in the road on the way to work. Uffda. After getting to work, an assortment of women who forgot to bathe and doused themselves in perfume entered the museum. A few men with over powering aftershave were mixed in the bunch too..gave me a headache, and instantly plugged up my nose. I should get hazardous duty pay. For awhile yesterday I was thinking of breaking out the Gas Mask that is in one of the display cabinets.
Seriously does perfume eventually destroy your sense of smell? How can anyone not know that they are as offensive with their perfume and aftershave as a cigar or pipe smoker. If you use perfume..ask some of your non perfumed friends how you smell. Do yourself and other people a favor and pour your perfume down the drain. Go scentless..bathe..use soap..like Ivory..perhaps you will have more friends.
I could have used a pair of these old spectacles.
No bows or wires that hook over your ear..these just pinch your nose. They are called Pince-nez. These were in an Antique Shop..no I did not buy them.
In eight working days I will be done, I have enough comp time to vacate the museum at least three days early…which may be a good thing. It froze here again last night and the museum was very cool today..if it stays cold I will have to wear a parka and snow boots to work. The Board Members will just have to handle the over perfumed and the cool temperatures for a few days:)
