Stench and Fragrance

Nothing revives the past so completely as a smell that was associated with it.

—Vladimir Nabokov

Duff here. Flowers and Trees are starting to bloom. Spring has sprung, and I’m feeling Frisky. Starting to move More Easily in My Abode and the yard. Memories of Bygone Puppy Days are returning. Mom and I were getting ready for Work when I discovered a Scent I couldn’t resist. It reminded Me of Playing in many Places as a Puppy, so I had to roll in It. Heaven! Living unstuck.

Mom was not so enthused. What was a pleasant Aroma to Me? A Stench to Mom. She looked at Me, then Started to laugh. I was covered Nose to Tail with Something Awful to Her. After a moment of hilarity, She gathered Me up and placed Me in the Tub for a quick Bath. She scrubbed a bit more Vigorously than usual, for I had really done a Number. In the End, I was smelling like a Rose (to Her.) Living unstuck.

How about You? Have You smelled a Fragrance that took You back to the Past? Or is Your Nose so stopped up with Allergens You can’t smell a thing? I say: Live a Little. Even if It’s Apple Pie like Mom’s or a fragrance of a past Girlfriend, enjoy it to the Fullest. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#stench-and-fragrance
