I had to break out the “smelly” shirt today. Other Army wives know the shirt I am talking about. It’s the shirt he left behind that smells just like him. The one you find when you are doing all of his laundry after he has left and you just can’t bring yourself to wash it. Yep, that one! It smells a perfect mixture of his deodorant, cologne, and shampoo. The smell of “him!”
I keep mine in a ziplock bag at the end of my bed and only bring it out when I really need the comfort it provides. I lay there and deeply breath in the perfect scent! Immediately my body relaxes and I am calmed.
Today was a “smelly” shirt kind of day!
