For my birthday my mom and brother gave me a gorgeous leather handbag.
Birthday morning, as soon as I open the box, the smell of new supple pink leather fills the room. I inhale,
“Mmm it’s beautiful!”
Throughout the day I continue to hold the bag to my face. It smells so good! This is the best smelling handbag I’ve ever had.
I text my brother to tell him I’m in love with the bag. He replies,
“It’s pretty cute.”
I report all this to my roommate. She declares,
“I want to see it.”
I present it. She says,
“Oh it’s beautiful.”
