Çünkü romantik bir yemeğe giderken kullanacağınız parfüm ile, tester parfüm iş görüşmesine giderken kullanacağınız parfüm aynı olmamalıdır. Yemeğe gittiğiniz sırada kullanacağınız romantik ortam ile uyumlu olan çekici parfümler, iş görüşmesinde yerini biraz daha geri planda duran kokulara bırakmalıdır.

They started very close to on time, it was quick, and I was surprised by the quantities of packaged meat they were giving away. I now have enough to share.

The only thing I maybe would've changed is I would've asked if the meat was already precooked (it looked like it, but I wasn't sure), and what the expiration date for it would be. Otherwise, great event.

Extremely funny and I enjoyed myself waaay more than I expected. Nicole Byer tried a little too hard with some of her jokes but Rip Michaels and Nick Cannon had me in hysterics. It was great to take a break from college and responsibilities and have a good laugh.
