At the co-op the other day my wife and son decided to try out some hand lotion samplers. She went down the line pumping out small samples of several different smells like “Peaches and Creme” or “Lavander and Shea Butter”, and holding them out for my son to sniff. Then she got to a bottle labeled “Peaceful Patchouli” and instead of dispensing a small blob in her hand like the others it instead shot out a line of lotion which landed as a white stripe running from just above my sons eyebrow, down across his (thankfully closed) eye and cheek and continued down his chest. He looked down at himself then commented, “whats so peaceful about that?”
