We were sitting in the living room. Her eyes sparkled as she opened her purse and pulled out a small spray bottle.
She said, “You’re gonna like this cologne.”
Quickly I moved away from her. “No, thank you.”
She was smiling. “Come on. Give it a chance.”
I sighed. “Just because it smells good on you doesn’t mean everyone will like it”
“You won’t know about it until you try. It has such a fresh scent.” She seemed to be winking.
“No! I don’t want to. Don’t spray that stuff on me.”
“Would you stop being so stubborn?”
She reached out and pointed the cologne at my neck and as I got up to turn away I could taste the sickening scent on my tongue.
“Oops,” she said. “What do you think?”
