Anyway, I've been sitting here for a couple of hours, plugged into my music, and despite the comings and goings of other customers, I haven't really noticed my surroundings... That is until about an hour ago when my nose was bombarded by the heavy fragrance of a woman who sat behind me (on what appears to be a date). Since I was sitting at a table right next to the door, fresh air blown right at my face every time a customer entered the cafe, I didn't think the scent would bother me enough to switch tables. I was wrong... Being so late in the afternoon, there wasn't as many customers entering/leaving the place as I expected, so I was bombarded by the pungent aroma every time I inhaled. Not only did the woman's perfume annoy me, it started to give me a headache too...
I looked across the space to the other side and luckily a small table with a power outlet that's located in-between the back entrance and the drive through window area opened up. I actually have a pretty sensitive sense of smell (in addition to all my other senses), and have been able to smell cigarette smoke clear across the room from the outside door of a crowded restaurant or lingering on someone who hadn't lit a cigarrette in a couple of hours. Like my experience with a strong woman's perfume while on a plane (which I described at the end of my 4/4/13 post), I didn't know if I'd truly be able to escape the woman's perfume smell, but I was lucky. Although there aren't many people entering/leaving this entrance, enough people are using the drive through that I get enough whiffs of fresh air to continue where I left off, so...
