Something dawned on me this morning; I’m not the only fragrance lover in the family. My senior citizen princess (no, make that queen) of the house is obsessive about her one and only beloved scent….Bounce. No, that’s not a perfume, it’s a scented dryer sheet. Francesca can’t get enough of the sweet and powdery baby fresh scent of the fabric sheets.
Now if you have an animal, you’ll know that each one of them has their own set of quirks. Francie has 2 loves; treats and Bounce. I’m not quite sure when we first noticed this, but when doing laundry if you don’t fold and put away the contents of the basket right away, you’ll find the tattered remains of a Bounce sheet somewhere outside the vicinity of the basket. The other thing that you notice is that when you pick her up, she smells like fresh laundry. I have seen her joyous roll around on the used sheet a few times. She’s in heaven and I’m sure for her it’s better than catnip. Most of the time though her raptured joy of the Bounce roll is reserved as a very private occasion. It’s only when she comes and sits on your lap that you instantly recognize that she’s been refreshing herself with her favorite fragrance.
At least her fragrance obsession isn’t as expensive as mine.
