Don't Follow the Nose

My husband and I had another date tonight. Whew, two weeks in a row! We’re on some kind ‘o roll!!

My father in law and his best buddy watched the kids for us. We walked in the house and some odor hit me. I’ve been a bit nauseous ever since. Of course this has been made worse by my having to go through the house, room to room, in search of the strange foul scent and its beginnings.

As I deliberately, but quietly, went from room to room, I could not place it, but my stomach continued to roll. I said to my husband quietly, “What is the smell? Is it your Dad, is it urine and cologne, is it something else I need to find?”

My husband replied, “I think its the garbage… I need to take it out.”

I don’t know. I think he’s wrong, although I’m not going to open the garbage and find out. I walked into our bathroom to find my eldest had decided to shower in there, so the smell of Axe shampoo has permeated that room and perhaps part of the house.

So who knows… perhaps I was smelling Axe mixed with cologne, urine and garbage.

I need a Tums…

I'm thinking more and more that my sense of smell being on the blink, is really a blessing.

You wanna talk about garbage smells? I live next to the Garden State. Whew! The Sewage Capital of the World, I tell ya.

Ugh. Hope you find it... I hate it when that happens...

Jerry- There is something to be said for that...

Erica- Really? I had no idea. I knew one of those states up there set garbage adrift on a barge. Just don't let them bring it down here!

VW- and to make it worse... I realized as I went to bed, I wore hair product last night which I NEVER do. NEVER. And so I could smell that on top of it all, so close to my face. I'm not wearing it again. Blech.
