Mommy, do we really have to go and visit Aunt Annie again tonight?
Why dear, do you not like your Aunt?
I like her, it’s just that she smells kind of funny.
Her job is handling tobacco all day long making cigarettes dear, so that’s probably why you think she smells funny.
No it’s not that kind of a smell. Daddy smells like cigarettes but she has a different smell to her.
Mommy thought hard about it. Of course, now I know what you’re referring to. Your aunt comes home every Friday night and makes herself a garlic sandwich.
