Well? Are you?
Do you know what it means?
The Urban Dictionary uses this definition…….
Adjective. Used to describe persons who have adjusted or altered their lifestyle for environmental reasons. Crunchy persons tend to be politically strongly left-leaning and may be additionally but not exclusively categorized as vegetarians, vegans, eco-tarians, conservationists, environmentalists, neo-hippies, tree huggers, nature enthusiasts, etc.
According the the Urban Dictionary there are more than 41 different definitions for the term Crunchy. Some of them are weirder than the one above. I have changed my life for my life and not for the environment, does that still make me crunchy?
I do not qualify as a typical crunchy. I have previously used the term dirt-loving, tree hugger, guess I am now officially a dirt-loving tree-hugger.
I have said I need a shirt that says “non-patchouli wearing, meat eating, hippie.” Do you think it would take off?
I am discussing this because today I just wanted to smell girly, you know like fruity hair products, Downey in the laundry, Fabreze in the house. Girly stuff. I know in my head that all that is bad for me but, in my secret girly heart I just wanted to smell……well girly.
I did get over this though ……about 2 pm when my last patient left the dressing room reeking of hairspray, perfume, and antiperspirant. Why don’t women war hairspray to their mamogram appointment? Who started that? Even after 20 minutes the department still smelled.
I decided that my non-girly smell is just fine. My smell does not make my eyes water or my nose run, I must consider that a bonus.
