Maybe I should say that’s it’s very disturbing that there’s even a category called “Nicest smelling” in Facebook’s Compare People application.
It raises an image in my mind of people going around sniffing one another.
I’ve been disturbed by this for some time.
Even more disturbing is the fact that I’ve been on top spot for “Nicest smelling” since, like, I installed this app, like, last year.
Of course, I am awfully flattered and glad that people think I’m nice smelling, which rules out the possibility that I’m nasty smelling, which is very nice, but who in the world is smelling me??
Looking through my list of 200+ friends on Facebook, many of whom I don’t really know but added anyway because I have like 20 friends in common with them so they must be someone I know but just can’t remember, I don’t have a memory of anyone actually coming up to me to smell me.
The craziest part is that I don’t even wear perfume.
I’m very sensitive to scents, and most perfumes give me a headache and a sore throat. There was once I just rubbed a paper perfume sample gently on my wrist and it made me feel sick the whole day.
I wonder what I’ve done to earn the honour of being “Nicest smelling”.
I guess I can’t do anything about it now except try my best to avoid contact with people I know, after a round of jogging, in order to avoid losing my spot.
If any of you ladies are taking part in Shape Run ’08, let me know. I’ll, uh, wear a mask. Or I might not even turn up because I’m so out of shape now. Urgh.

Just kidding. It hasn’t.
I don’t wear deodorant, either.
