I was reading the Cologne thread and I was reminded of a couple I teach. They have a big height difference, and it just so happens that her nose is the exact same height as hit arm pit. After a couple of lessons, she came up to me and another teacher and explained the problem, and how the smell was especially problematic from her standpoint. I hadn't noticed anything, but on the next lesson, I was a little more attentive. He did have a slight odor. I actually, without his knowing got a little closer, so I could identify with her position, and sure enough I could see what she meant. Before the next lesson she called me and asked me to ask him when his birthday was coming, and it just so happened it was only a couple of weeks away, so she gave him a set of cologne and deodorant, etc. A month later the other teacher had told yet another teacher, who confronted him about the odor. After my last lesson with them, apparently he said something to the effect of: I changed shirts before the lesson. I hope you are happy! Both he and her are very nice people. She is very shy, and he is much bigger than her. I can see how she might have been afraid to say something, and in the end it may have ended up biting her. I know she really likes him, and I hope they work it out. I also hope they might consider Latin instead of standard considering the height difference. I would apprecaiate your feedback, as I really like these people.
