Bye Bye Juicy - Bye Bye


We experienced a tragic loss last night.

Steven and I have a pretty busy week this week, so last night we decided to try going to the gym in the mornings to free up some time after work. I generally shy away from morning workouts primarily because I hate getting ready at the gym. I always forget something important: bra, mascara, conditioner, etc. It’s pretty difficult to pull off a full day’s work with no bra!

So I began packing my bag doing my best to be diligent and include all necessary items. In the hustle of trying to pack my bag quickly so I could get in bed at a decent hour I dropped my Juicy perfume and it splattered all over the bathroom floor. I gasped, “Oh no! Oh no! Oh no – oh no – oh no!” I had to fight back the tears that rushed to the brim as I picked up the empty bottle and saw my perfume spreading across the tile. You see, I just got this perfume for Christmas and I love it. I feel so dainty each morning as I use it. I catch lights scents of it throughout the day and feel incredibly feminine and pretty (yes…I know…I know – but I just really like it okay!).

Steven came rushing into the bathroom, “What’s wrong!?! Are you hurt!?! What’s wrong!?!” I stood there, bottom lip poked out, begging the tears not to fall “My Juicy is ruined” is all that I could manage. “Your Juicy”, he responded. “Yes! My Juicy”, I replied thinking that he understood the severity of the matter. “All that ruckus over a bottle of perfume?” “Yes, Steven! It’s not just a bottle of perfume….it’s my *Juicy* perfume!” He eyed me quizzically – stood there for a moment making sure there was no real bodily harm I may have been hiding then sighed, “If that’s all, I’m going back into the living room.”

The nerve! How dare he not understand the importance of this item to me? Whoever coined the phrase, “No use crying over spilt perfume” obviously never spilt an entire bottle of $75 Juicy perfume! That will make your stomach do a flip. Steven tried to explain that we can easily replace the perfume and to be glad that it wasn’t something more valuable. I!?!?!

The point isn’t that the perfume can be replaced. It’s that it was a gift (actually, I returned a gift and purchased this instead…wow that’s really bad, but still in effect, it was the result of a gift!) and I don’t want to purchase another bottle. I don’t want to spend the money again. Oye….

So here I sit, Monday morning, reeking because I don’t have any pretty perfume.

Yes, I know, I know. My dramatic tendencies may have flared a little last night – but I really am upset. Have you ever lost/ruined something that you really loved and you had a hard time getting over it? I’m not talking about something priceless or irreplaceable – just something that you really liked and didn’t necessarily want to spend the money replacing. Does anyone feel my pain??

I totally understand... I know you can just go out and by more but that is never the same...

You will have a new bottle soon and be smelling so good. =}

I would have had a eye dropper trying to get it off the floor LOL...

Ohhh, SO sad! :-( I work out in the morning at the gym once in a while too, but I wear scrubs to work so it's soo easy to pack in the morning :-) I hope you get a replacement bottle soon!

I understand! I hate buying perfume... but it's one of my favorite things so I like to receive it as a gift... so if something like that happenned, I would cry too! I'm sad that i'm about out of one of my favorite perfumes as it is... :(

Mrs P said...

hahahahaha.

Ok, that was so un-sympathetic. Your posts just crack me up though, and that's good because I'm stressed today, mk?

I vote you have him buy you a new bottle and gift it to you, then it's a gift again! :)

I HATE when stuff like that happens. Especially when it's when you're trying to do something good (like going to the gym in the morning-yuck!).
I'm so sorry! :(

I have an ornament tree that has those hand painted glass blown ornaments on there that i put out on my bar area during xmas time and this year we recently got a new kitten who decided to climb up and knock it down. Broke all of my ornaments except for 3 and I just started crying. I called my fiance at work to tell him what happened and because I put it up two days before turkey day he asked why did I already put it up instead of consoling me.

Guys just dont get it!

I've dropped perfume like this several times and it is always so sad. Who wants to have to spend the money twice? And my husband would react the exact same way.

Tami said...

Ahhh I'm sorry about your fabulous perfume :(

Although, on a brighter note...Valentine's Day is on the horizon and may bring something sweet and scenty too!!!

Have a great week ahead!

xoxo

You have to go out and buy another bottle! Perfume is a great way to start the day. It makes you feel more feminine. Of course men don't get it! Valentines Day?

Leesie said...

Aww poor thing I would be mourning the loss of Juicy too. I don't even want to think of how hard it would be to get that cleaned up or the smell away of a whole bottle of perfume. I'm sure you'll get a replacement soon.

Oh no I feel your pain! So sad!

I dropped an entire bottle of MAC liquid makeup all over the bathroom floor once. It was brand new. Granted not nearly as expensive as a bottle of Juicy but fricken' eh! Boys don't understand. I get it.

Amber said...

I just found your blog & love it!


I understand that completely! Hopefully you can get some more soon! Guys just don't understand ;)

Lisa said...

Completely! I had just bought a new bottle of makeup and was closing up my makeup bag, when it went flying out and shattered all over the floor. I was so bummed! (I know it's not all that expensive, but I buy it so rarely, I was bummed.)

I completely understand! Poor Juicy!
