    She woke up early this morning in a state of paranoia
    just as every other morning had started

    The air was devoid of a particular scent; one she
    just couldn't put her finger on to save her own
    life…maybe

    The truth was there to be told in her mind;
    but her nose was surely telling her something else

    ****! I just can't get this out of my mind!
    she says

    Nose in the air - she sniffs…

    Oh well, the routines of the day were yet
    to be done

    There was a lot to be accomplished that
    would occupy her so as not to be overcome
    by her womanly intuition

    Laundry and housecleaning - the common
    weekend excitement, was always the cure
    for her early morning inquiries

    She could definitely put her nose on the
    smell of fabric softener sheets, laundry
    soap, disinfectant and the like

    Another inhale…

    This is becoming mind boggling and compulsive
    she thought

    But **** it I just can't help myself!

    What is that scent?

    Determined to find out, she hurriedly walked
    about the house sniffing room after room

    Exhausted from the errand she just sent her
    mind and nose on, she slowly walked into her
    bedroom and laid across her king-sized bed

    She grabbed one of her pillows - clutched it
    tightly, buried her head and began to cry
    uncontrollably

    Then she stood up…

    It took her only a moment to realize the why
    of her self-imposed obsession with this
    unknown scent

    She realized it was…

    THE SCENT OF A MAN that she was missing...
