Smells Deceiving

The folks at philosophy make some wonderful products. We’ve been washing the kids with various shampoos that smell like chocolate, oatmeal raisin, and snickerdoodle. Having a daughter that smells like cookies is a huge challenge for a dad already inclined to chewing on his progeny.

Washing her hair tonight, I was less attentive than I should have been and some dribbled into her eyes. Naturally she cried. I felt pretty bad, but I couldn’t believe that something that smelled so good could hurt anyone.

My wife helpfully pointed out the flaw in my logic by observing that jabbing an oatmeal raisin cookie into your eye would also hurt.
