Designer Imposters

When I was 10 years old, I got an allowance of $2/week. I thought I was rich - $2 can buy so much! Candy, string to spend hours using to make friendship bracelets, and when I was feeling extra special, a bottle of Wet & Wild nail polish or designer imposters perfume. My friends and I would walk to Walgreens and spend hours spraying the different scents in the air. Sure we made customers cough and sneeze as they walked past, but all we cared about was finding the best scent for us. Imagine my surprise today after a long day at work when some lady on Bart pulls a bottle out. First I was surprised to see they still existed. Then, imagine how I felt when she popped off the cap and sprayed the bart everyone had to smell it. I was no longer that 9 year old girl, but one of the many adult walgreens customers coughing and sneezing like crazy. I think I can still smell it...

Update: I should have quoted Clueless in this post:
Amber - "Was I the only one listening? I thought it reaked."
Cher - "I believe that was your designer imposters perfume."

Oh god, YES! I used to buy it for my mom thinking I was treating her to "fancy perfume."

Also, this reminds me of that clip where all the SitC girls are trying to find their scent in the perfume place and Miranda gets squirted with Fresh Cut Grass. Word.
