Eli 3.6 and the Code of Perfume

Woman have this secret code of competition when they're visiting each other. They have to fix their hair and put on makeup and perfume. It's as if they're expecting a spontaneous modeling competition to break out near them on a portable runway.

And if it does, they want to be ready.

So Gloria's having dinner with one of her friends tonight, and she goes through her usual rigorous preparations as I watch a Rescue Heroes episode with Eli. When she comes out of the bathroom, she's wearing perfume. Within seconds, Eli 3.6 yells "Mommie! There is an unfamiliar smell coming from you!"
