I've seen a documentary about that. I am very thankful that I was not on the pill when I met Asha. And he did not use any deodorant or cologne, so I had a pretty good idea of what he smelled like. Yum to my nose
Don't fight against the existing model, create a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

That's funny, we have the same expression in French. I would expect similar expression in languages that are closer, such as Latin languages from one to the next, but German and French aren't that close, so that's pretty interesting.
