Happy Friday and happy National Comic Book Day! (And a few selected birthdays: William Faulkner, Donald Glover, Glenn Gould, Pedro Almodóvar, plus a quick PSA: the freebiemeet starts tomorrow.) Our community project for today: name a favorite comic book character, and wear the fragrance that suits him or her.
What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.
I have a feeling that real comic book people do not include comic strips as "comic books", even if the strips have been collected in books. I'm going with Calvin and Hobbes anyway. I did not pay any attention to the strip during the ten years Bill Watterson was writing it (1985-1995), but once my son learned to read it was one of his favorites, and then I started to read it too, and even now I can pick up one of the books and lose track of time for the next hour or so. So I'm scenting Calvin, who would not wear cologne in a million years, but he probably has that little boy dirt smell. Demeter Dirt would be perfect but if I have any I can't find it, and CB I Hate Perfume Black March is too sad, so I'm in (a precious tiny drop of) CB I Hate Perfume On A Clear Day You Can See Forever. It's not quite right but I do smell awfully good.
Reminder: on 10/2, our subject is On the back roads by the rivers of my memory...do what you like with the lyric from the 1968 song Gentle on My Mind. Suggested by Mossyberry.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2020, where I'll try (but frequently fail) to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
