Things I Find More Than a Little Embarrassing

Standing in line at Chipotle tonight, the one right around the U of Dayton, minding my own business....

... and then!

Some jocky 20-something college kid gets in line behind me. I did not notice him at all when he walked up.

Oh no, I did not notice him until I smelled him. I recognized the scent immediately, not because it made me want to gag, but because the smell made me want to turn around and tear all his clothes off, just like in the commercials.

Yes, indeed: he was wearing Axe body spray.

Seriously. It triggers my crazy-attraction Kryptonite response like nothing else besides the Real Deal.

I find my stunning physical reaction to this body spray - so ridiculously like the commercials - to be incredibly embarrassing.

Seriously. I had to turn my back to him. I had to force myself not to turn and look, because I knew he was just some kid and certainly not All That, but gawd was I feeling otherwise... heady scent-drunk.

Sometimes I'm just so damn easy.

Yum.

I... I feel like I have some kind of moral duty to not store this information.

These are not the droids you're looking for...

It's one more reason I'll be happy to get my own place. Not only will I be able to wear my own perfume, but if I do end up dating again, my date can wear cologne!

The not-Boyfriend used to wear this, once he figured out it drove me crazy. Then he put it on right before coming over one day and it nearly killed Ian. Worst attack I've seen him have.

I found out that day that Axe is one of the things he's most violently allergic to....

I can't believe there's any truth in those Axe commercials. World...spinning...!

These aren't the droids we're looking for. Move along!

I'm seriously hoping that there are only a few of us who react like this. Otherwise, I fear for humanity.

And my productivity.

I feel you. My ex wore it...oh my goodness did the scent drive me crazy! I'd like my new guy to wear it but it brings back too many memories so I told him to use anything but axe :(
