We have air freshener issues.
The farmer thinks we don’t need any. I disagree.
Back to my theory based on Freud’s anal phase. Little boys learn that they can control mommy’s world by making a poo in the potty. ” Well done, Big Boy! ”
Or by refusing to make a poo in the potty. Mom puts on anxious face. Mom ponders her success at momness. Power to the boy….
Either way, boy learns early on that his poo is VERY IMPORTANT. And if it gets Mom all happy and excited it can’t smell bad now can it?
Mom doesn’t run to get the air freshener. Their is clapping and joy all round. Boy thinks his poop is a great thing!
Enter girlfriend. Partner. Wife.
Enter the concept of the air freshener.
Enter the grocery list with air freshener on it.
“Why did you get “Lily Of The Valley”? The list says to get Oust? ”
“I liked the way it sounded. All early morning dew and green grass and so. ”
“Lily of the Valley doesn’t work. You still have the smell. Except now you have the smell of poop TOGETHER with the smell of retirement home.”
“Oust is very expensive. I could get 2 Lily of the Valley’s for the price of one Oust.”
“So you got two of something that doesn’t work? ”
Baffled face. Face that says : “Actually, I don’t see why we need the stuff. My poop doesn’t smell. Ask my mother!”
I rest my case…
