Like mother, like daughter...

I arrived home to find a BPAL package. Yay! Unwrapped everything hurriedly, and grabbed one of the two scents I'd asked for (got a bunch of frimps). Opened the one I hadn't already had. Inhaled blissfully. Passed the imp wand to Elayna - "Here, smell this!"

"Oooooh. It's like cookies." *sniff* *sniff* "Wow, I love that!"

I applied some, then extended my arm to be sniffed.

"Oh, Mommy, I love that. Even more than Chimera!"

I started laughing. She asked why. "Because, my dear, you have chosen for your new favorite one of the rarest of the rare. Bottles of this stuff go for $30-$50. I love you. But you cannot have this."

My child's favorite BPAL?

Miskatonic University.

She could only do worse by falling for Shub or a C12.

"But I can still borrow the imp sometimes, right?"

"On very rare occasions."

So. First day of sixth grade. Monkey earrings. Cute T-shirt. Embroidered jeans. Miskatonic University. Oy.

EDIT: And as a consolation prize, she has been promised a bottle of Gingerbread Poppet for $WINTERHOLIDAY, if they rerelease it this year. Cookie-perfume for Elayna.
