And where were those red shoes headed to? Why, Holt Renfrew’s of course, and straight to the Jo Malone counter. Again? Again. I’ve already gone though 1/4 of my body lotion and I wanted to get a few more samples so I can start testing and planning what fragrance I should go with next to mix in with those I’ve started with. Apparently, this happens a lot to people who discover Jo Malone: they just get hooked and keep getting other scents to mix together to get truly unique fragrances. I walked away from there with well over a dozen samples. I was also instructed to only use the lotion on arms and legs only—I was going for the full body experience but at that rate I’ll have to buy a bottle every month. I felt like I should buy something what with all those samples and the time it took to prepare them, but H, the lovely Jo Malone lady said I should wait till their next promotion when they’ll be handing out gifts with every purchase. Sounds like a plan.
Otherwise, I found out today that my fresh morning pink grapefruit juice (with oranges)—one of the the most important parts of my morning ritual—may be slowly killing me. Seriously. Apparently grapefruits can have a dangerous interaction with certain medications. I’d never heard about this before today or even imagined such a thing could be possible. Other citrus fruit are fine somehow. Go figure. They’ll look into my file ASAP and let me know if I need to make changes. I guess if need be I’ll just switch to fresh pure orange juice, but it just won’t be the same, so here’s hoping I can keep grapefruits on the menu. But seriously… death by grapefruit juice?? That’s just too ridiculous.
