There are those rare things in life that are so funny that every time you remember them, you can't help but burst out laughing.
One of mine happened years ago when my daughter, Brenda was about thirteen. The Avon Lady came to our house selling cosmetics and fragrances. She opened up her case of products and showed us some sample vials of various colognes. Bren asked to smell the jasmine. She took the stopper off the tiny vial and held it up to her nose. It was such a light fragrance that she couldn't get a good whiff. Before I knew it, she inserted the vial into one nostril, closed the other nostril with her finger and snorted it!
She started coughing and sputtering, her eyes watering, as the Avon Lady and I looked on in astonishment. When we realized what happened, we both laughed so hard we were practically rolling on the floor.
Poor Brenda was exhaling perfume for hours afterward.The only after-effect she has suffered is the indignity when we retell the story and laugh all over again. (In fact, I laughed the whole time I was writing this!)
