That Smell

I don’t think I’m being rude when I point out that a number of Ugandans have bad body odor. (There was a column in the Sunday section of The Daily Monitor newspaper called “Full Woman” addressing just this problem, along with how to maintain nice legs (lotion, exercise, healthy eating, and a positive attitude - has "Full Woman" been watching Oprah?) and the worst pick-up lines (like "Will you be my frog?").)

Sometimes when someone passes and you look up and there’s no one really about, no one to really pin the odor to, you get to thinking that maybe it’s you that smells that bad. Maybe it’s so hot and you’ve been sweating so much your deodorant has worn off. Maybe everyone begins to smell this way once you’ve been living here long enough.
