We have a winner!

23 Sep

Julie “nose” her smells. She has sniffed out the source of the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad smell that invaded the car last week.

I asked for your guesses in my post about the smell, and my gosh, you people like a good guessing game. I write about deep spiritual struggles, and three brave souls offer a comment. I dare you to “name that smell” and you come out in droves. It’s ok, I don’t judge.

Also, many of you offered excellent guesses. Fish heads, dog poop, dead terrorists (thanks, Jack Bauer), curry gone south, a forgotten gym bag. One former co-worker suggested perhaps it was my husband. For the record, I will report that he is not particularly stinky, and is also alive and well.

But Julie guessed correctly. The offending odor came from:

Danimals Yogurt Smoothie. Delicious Unless Left in Car

Danimals Yogurt Smoothie. Delicious Unless Left in Car








Yes! A delicious Danimals Yogurt Smoothie! Left unattended, it rolled under the seats where it proceeded to fester in a most malodorous way. Please do not try and replicate this experience at home. The FDA has already investigated claims that my children were trying to create chemical weapons of mass nose destruction.

And congratulations to Julie, who learned through experience, her younger brother having been similarly irresponsible with the disposable of a half-eaten yogurt. She wins a free frozen and non-stinky yogurt at Red Mango at her earliest convenience.

The rest of you, go clean your cars!

    Interesting as there is a mysterious smell in my car at the moment. I would describe it as melted crayons or a burning candle. Yes, I think it is about time to clean out the car.

    Go Julie! I really thought I had it with the rotten banana peel… Cheers!

    Isn’t it odd that when something smells or tastes gross we always offer it up for others to try? Ew, this taste yucky, taste it! This doesn’t smell right, smell it! 🙂

    Damn those Danimals! Damn them to hell! Someone, named my husband, dumps unfinished ones directly into our recycling bin WITHOUT RINSING THEM OUT FIRST. Why not invite the whole freaking animal planet out to our driveway to feast on discarded children’s yogurt? Why, God? WHY?

    Congratulations to Julie!

    Now, aren’t you a little light in the posting department, this week? Hmmm?
