and no, this is not one of those self-helpy affirmation-type thingys. it’s a fact, based upon long term empirical observation of my reactions. i’m different today than i was yesterday or last week, on a very visceral chemical level. not that i’m completely different and new every single day, i just fluctuate between several disparate compositions.
ok here’s what i mean. i have an assortment of calvin klein fragrances my daughter gave me for my last birthday. obsession, truth, contradiction, eternity, escape, and ckone. i have some cool avon stuff and some vanilla fields as well, real basic stuff. and i like them all. just not all at one time.
in the morning, i will open the cap of several different fragrances and sniff the nozzle. and on different days, i react completely differently. today, eternity smelled just lovely, while on other days, i’ll sniff it and actually recoil in disgust. today, it was that way with truth — ugh. it stank.
so whatever it is in me that thinks things smell good or bad, is completely different on different days, no real cycle or pattern that i’ve observed, just, very different.
