Hockey Moms on the Road

19 Jan 2009 /

My 15-year-old son and I were at the Embassy Suites happy hour having drinks (me) and snacks (him) with some of the other hockey parents and kids.

One of the hockey moms was a really-hot-for-a-45-year-old redhead whose son plays for another team.

“I haven’t seen your son in a while,” she whispered to me. “He looks so different.”

“Yeah, he’s a lot taller,” I said.

“Not just taller. He’s a gorgeous young man.”

“Oh. Thanks.”

She spent the next hour chatting him up, asking him about features on her iPhone, and so on . . .

“Because she was drunk,” the boy said later.

She was kinda drunk, but that wasn’t the only thing going on. Her husband was sitting a couple of chairs away the whole time, surfing the web on his Blackberry, and never even looked in her direction.


I was talking to my son’s hockey coach between games when a hockey mom he knows and I don’t walked between us and hugged him.

“Excuse me,” I said. “We’re trying to have a conversation here.”

Then she turned around and hugged me. She smelled nice.

“You smell nice,” I said. “What is that?”

“Obsession,” she said.

She was wearing a lot of it. I could still smell it on my clothes two hours later . . .

    Review of Obsession by Marjorie R. *****
    “I started wearing Obession when I was pregnant, because some smells bother me, my son is now 23 and I still wear Obession and my husband loves the perfume! So I will never wear anything but Obession!”

    Review of Obsession by Sherry S. *****
    “I have been wearing Obsession since about 1988 or 1989.”

    Review of Obsession by Althea J. *****
    “I like the earthy fragrance of Obsession. It makes me feel sexy. The scent lasts for a long time…”

    Review of Obsession by Helen T. *****
    “I have been wearing Obsession for many years now and always get comments , my Mother also wears it. I think because it lasts for such a long time you need not keep applying and still smell great. I very rarely try anything else these days.”

    Review of Obsession by Kimberly *****
    “Smells great reminds me of my mother who wore it as here signature scent for years!”

    Review of Obsession by Mikell R. ***_*
    “Obsession is one of those scents that I WANT to really like. I find the fragrance very pleasant but the scent far too strong. I think musk and vanilla fragrances can both be a bit overbearing, and this scent seems to contain both. My mother, however, who passed away right before her 92nd birthday, loved this scent.”
