First time coconut oil led to me being creeped out.
And now an episode from this morning. I have this one gas station that I stop by almost every morning. It’s on my way and the employees there are friendly. No, I’m not always feeding Molly every morning. I get drinks, snacks, energy shots, too. Things happen to me here all the time. Some would stop going, but it provides fodder for these episodes.
Every morning, I do my usual ritual in getting ready for work. I use coconut oil in my hair as well as my skin (probably why it’s so soft). And cotton candy body spray. Combination sounds weird, right? It isn’t. I promise. Well I went into my favorite gas station this morning and while I was perusing the drinks because I may want to switch it up, I noticed that this guy keeps walking behind me. Like back and forth in the aisle right behind me. Now I know that I take up a lot of space and I try to get out of others’ way. But it was starting to creep me out. So on his fourth pass, I held my breath, wondering if I could hear something. I did. I heard him sniff me!! Incredulous, I stopped him and just asked:
Me: Did you really just sniff me?
Him: Yeah you smell good.
Me: Uh thank you, but what you’ve been doing is really creepy.
Him: I’m sorry miss. It’s a scent that I haven’t smelled in a long time. Coconut candy. I couldn’t help myself. Can I hug you so it stays with me?
Me: Now you’re really creepy. Bye.
And I left. Seriously? Why do I get the creeps?
<sigh> My life is never boring.
