Boys will be boys...

...even when they are 21 years old!

James (see sidebar for pic) comes up to me with a small cologne bottle. "Smell this." My reaction is, 'it isn't going to gross me out, is it?'

"I don't know."

So I bravely take a whiff. It smells like...

...dirt.

No kidding, my son found a cologne called "Dirt." And it really smells like the stuff I dig up out in my garden. (Happily, not like manure--I don't have that big of a garden.)

Jamie (his friends call him James) says there's a site on line where you can find cologne in every fragrance except gasoline.

He tells us as he happily heads out to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner:

"I'm going to be the cleanest guy ever who smells like dirt!"

Boys...

Oh my, dirt huh? I have a 20 year old who I think would find that pretty cool too!

*dies laughing* Should I be worried that he's not too far off from the age range that I would be dealing with, were there actually single guys where I live? ;)

Oh boy; PLEASE don't EVER let Jamie and Tyler get together! That sounds frighteningly like something Tyler would absolutely ADORE!
I agree with Terri; he could have just rolled in the dirt out back; not only save money that way, but he could have passed the dirt off as a "Long Island Tan!" A real "two-fer".........ROFLMBO!
