Eileen picked up the blanket as Bobby carried the heavy picnic basket to a romantic spot. She noticed she could smell Bobby’s new cologne coming from the blanket. Then she caught a whiff of perfume. Knowing it wasn’t hers, she anxiously tried to remember the vaguely familiar scent. As they set out the picnic spread, it came to her, it was THAT woman. Reaching for a piece of chicken she spotted the blonde hair, definitely not hers. That confirmed it. She knew with certainty her husband was guilty of betrayal with those long so-called business lunches.
