Mom told me a funny story about Dad’s Irish temper and latent jealous tendencies that I never heard about before. Mom had bought a bottle of Jovan White Musk and sprayed a bit on before heading to the grocery store. A fellow shopper, who also happened to be a fellow, caught wind of the enticing scent. He approached Mom and asked her what kind of perfume she was wearing. Sounds like a typical pickup line, right?
Turns out he just wanted to get a gift for his girlfriend, who emerged from around another aisle. The man asked his girlfriend if she would like him to buy her a bottle of this perfume. She took a whiff and said yes. The guy prodded Mom on where to buy it and went on his way.
Mom told the story to Dad who was none too pleased about another man telling his wife she smelled nice! I never knew Dad to be the jealous type so it was kind of a sweet and funny story to hear.
