The smell of desperation

Allen sniffed the air and cringed.
"What's that smell?" He asked cautiously. "Is that you?"

Lillian shrugged. "Maybe. I only shower once a month now. Conserves water. Pretty cool, huh?"

"Once a MONTH? Why not help the environment some other way, like recycling?"

"Nah. Hopefully if I smell bad enough, the telemarketers will stop calling."

So very funny! I just turn my phone off, so I can keep showering. Does that really work?

I was just getting used to your Food 55's.
And now you are talking Hygiene?
Loved it though...
You are like a Super size can of Desenex, in a sea of Dermitode Fitosis (Athletes Foot)
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Razzamadazzle: As long as you don't take the phone in the shower with you.

G-Man: And here all this time I thought Athlete's Foot was called Tinea Pedis. :)
Thanks for visiting. I missed you last week!

Yikes! I wonder if this would work for political robo-calls, too . . .

I love this idea, but I doubt the rest of the family would. :)

Ha. Conservation or laziness. Where do we draw the line. Great 55, Janna.

They'll just start calling to try and sell you toiletries.

(I didn't know toilets grew on trees!)

Funny 55, Jann!

if you ask me it's the telemarketers that are the stinky ones.

Quilly: Well, y'never know. It's entirely possible that telemarketers have superpowers beyond those of mortal man.

Brian: Scary, isn't it?

MamaZen: Anything's worth a try!
