Scent of a Memory
Iffy is standing behind Mimi.
He says: I love that perfume you’re wearing.
Mimi, smiling, says: You do?
Closeup of Iffy, thinking out loud.
He says: Yes. Isn’t it amazing how a scent can take you back to a wonderful place in time?
All of the sights and sounds and smells and emotions of that moment come rushing back. And it feels so real!
Closeup of Iffy, thinking out loud of fond memories.
He says: The cabin on the lake, the wood-burning stove. You and me in that big, comfy bed. Oh, the memories!
Mimi, out of view, says: That wasn’t me.
Iffy is horrified. Mimi is angry.
Iffy says: Huh?
Mimi, glaring at the perfume bottle in her hand, says: Must have been your first wife.
I just bought this perfume, but it’s going in the trash!
