Writing Wrong

January 1, 2016

Many years ago, someone I know came home from a visit to a foreign country and complained about having to share car rides with men who reeked of garlic. He said it was so bad he could hardly stand it. Several years later I wrote a story about a woman who keeps her would-be-philanderer husband on the straight and narrow by feeding him garlic soup before every sales trip he takes, so no women will want to be around him.

I guess I got it wrong. Recent studies indicate that men who eat lots of garlic are slightly more attractive to women than men who don’t.

Looks like I’ll have to ditch that one.
