this year....
i'm fighting the mosquitoes
off with a homemade household remedy.
listerine.
a generic brand
in a spray bottle.
covered with bug stickers.
listerine.
reminds me of my grandparents house.
sounds crazy, i know, but the
smell fills me with comfort.
memories from my childhood.

smile, wink, nod.

That's funny how you mentioned Listerine being a reminder of your grandparents house.

My grandpa used to gargle it and to this day,every time I smell listerine, I think of him :)
