Here are some random things I’ve been reminded of this week:
That I have a nice bottle of Chanel No. 5 perfume that I should really wear more often.
Why did that pop into my head? Well, I’ll tell you…
I was in the kitchen, lingering over a photo of Patrick Dempsey, who was hocking his new fragrance on the front of the Avon catalog.
And my 5-year-old came in and asked me what I was doing. And since I couldn’t say, “Drooling,” I told him I was considering buying the cologne in the ad, which led us to a conversation about perfumes and colognes, which led me to pull out the bottle of Chanel to show him what it was, which reminded me that I should really wear it more often.
And also reminded me to rip off the cover of the Avon catalog before throwing it into the recycling bin.
So I need to mention that to Santa.
Because cute, little earrings are not always on Santa’s radar, you know.
And all of those things reminded me that my checkbook is very modest and since I do plan on sending my kids to college someday, I should probably just sit down with a bowl of ramen noodles and try to forget about all of those things.
Except Patrick Dempsey, obviously.
