Yet another comic based on a real conversation with a coworker. He bought his girlfriend a bottle of perfume he selected because it was the largest bottle for the lowest price.
This was in Orlando. There are a lot of strip mall perfume stores in Orlando, most of them called “PERFUME.” They’re usually next to stores called “LUGGAGE,” “ELECTRONICS-SONY,” and “T-SHIRTS.” For some reason, tourist destinations seem to draw certain kinds of stores, even if they don’t fit the area’s primary draw. If you’re on a romantic trip to the Bahamas, perfume makes sense. Same goes for Hawaii or Cabo San Lucas, I guess. But if you’re going whale watching in Juneau, or spending a July day at Universal Studios Orlando, the last thing you want is something that will make you smell more.
