Practical Matters: Smells, Scents, and Fragrances
On the occasion of Mad Dog’s visit, we rented a car to do some serious noodling through the vineyards of the North Fork. With Mad Dog at the wheel, the windows opened and me at his side with my skirt dancing in the breeze, it became apparent that Mad Dog was getting more than a fleeting peek at my gams. For his eyes seemed more focused on the length of my legs than on the length of the car ahead of him. Once I opted for closed windows and AC, Mad Dog’s eyes were on the road again. My point? Life is filled with unexpected distractions. There’ll be times when you’ll be distracted and there’ll be times when you’ll be the distractor. The question arises whether your being the distraction is by accident or design. In driving as well as in wine tasting, it is better to be neither.
