Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific

I'm in the grocery store this morning, and I said hello to one of the regular stockers I always see in the deli section. I was standing a good ten feet from her, and she asks me "What kind of perfume are you wearing?"

"I don't wear perfume, but I just washed my hair, maybe you're smelling my shampoo?"

"Wow, could I really be smelling your shampoo from here? What kind of shampoo do you use?"

Silence. I couldn't remember what kind of shampoo I use? So I replied, "You know how you use something all the time and you stop paying attention to what it is you're buying?" She nodded (thankfully). She got a little closer to me, without stepping inside those invisible personal boundaries. She smiled as she said "Yup, it's definitely your hair. Gee, your hair smells terrific!". At least I could tell her what the bottles look like! I looked when I got home, and I use Herbal Essences, the body envy variety. I am tired and a little distracted today, but how embarrassing that I couldn't remember!

I always get compliments when I use Herbal Essance too. I love that stuff, it's yummy.

Now the next time you see her, you can happily inform her what kind of shampoo it is.

I wish they still sold Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific. It was crap, but such fun to say.

I believe we make room in our heads for the important information like what goes in our iPods and what's on TV. The things we just grab and use tend to rate lower.
