looks can be deceiving

i climbed onto the street car. looked around quickly and assessed my options.

there was a free seat behind a well dressed man who looked like he was in the habit of bathing.

i chose to sit in said free seat feeling that i would be free of olfactory assaults.

you know that saying 'don't judge a book by it's cover'?

well, this was an abject lesson in that particular adage.

this well dressed man, who looked to be in the habit of bathing, provided an olfactory assult so strong that it actually caused coughing on my part. and, of course, in response to the coughing, this well dressed badly smelling man turned around and glared at me.

god i hope i don't smell and don't know it. it's the only explanation i can come up with for a lot of smelly people i meet, they just don't know.
