"A woman must always smell like flowers or fruit. Never like musk," she told me. "A woman must always have clean ears, clean nose, manicure eyebrows, and clean fingernails.
"A clean presentable home is important, but not as important as a clean and presentable body. A woman can spend all day cleaning the house and never once stop to make sure she's fresh and beautiful. Then her man does come home and treat her like sh-t, and she wonderin' why, because the house is clean. Well, she's not clean!"
