I'm sure you have seen this commercial.
Yesterday while on a walk with Daisy, the tune started running through my head. Then I began adding my own images. You can get with this -
or you can get with that -
*doo dah dippity*
Then I noticed that there was a distinct 'ocean' smell. I suppose it is always present, but there are just some days that it seems more prevalent than others. Next I caught a *whiff* of Coppertone and suddenly I was four years old and at Jalama Beach.
As the years went by, the aroma changed along with me. By the time I was teen, Coppertone gave way to a special blend of baby oil and cocoa butter with subtle notes from the lemon juice I applied to help lighten my hair.
Then I chuckled a little as I realized that the changes just keep happening. Now in middle age, I've turned to unscented SPF 45 sunscreen, long sleeves, a wide brimmed hat and a vitamin D supplement to compensate for my lack of sun exposure. These days my skin stays light and my hair stays dark . . . well the ones that have not turned gray anyway.
Wouldn't it be great if Yankee Candle could come up with a Coppertone and kelp candle, just for old-times sake?
