I woke up on Sunday to do the wash and to get out the apartment since it was warmer, I went out to mingle with humanity. And good Lord I use humanity lightly I try not to judge but honestly if you cannot handle the night before then hang it up. I literally smelled people, alcohol and ass through their winter wear (coat, hat, etc.) So it helped with my diet because I did not eat.
The smells turned my stomach sour, and I honestly could not go on, thinking about, touching or eating food. It was not a pride thing it was more of a sanitary issue, especially with the flu season being strong this year I did not want to risk getting nauseated from the smells then getting sick because of my immune system taking a major hit. I just do not understand how people have made looking and being unshowered and unclean fashionable.
I mean to the point it does not look like showering was considered important in the morning, but the morning latte at Starbucks was. Hey I wash my privates! I worry about being funky before I leave the house everyday even If I do not leave, a shower takes place. I mean this is Oak Park, IL so how things are perceived are of the utmost importance therefore the reason I am smelling stank through winter clothes is disturbing.
Is there no civil pride? Maybe it is an environmental thing where people try to use as less water, soap, deodorant or toothpaste as possible? I heard about that before it was a hippie thing in the 60s or 70s like that, but I am not sure why it is coming back now. But please people of Oak Park, IL please stop the madness, and take a shower before you interact with the rest of us. Please.
