On this day in 1907 – Oscar Hammerstein announced a plan for five opera houses in New York.

Prefuse 73 – Preperation Kid’s Choir

Question of the Day:

What was the last, worst smell  you experienced?

    The smells in Barcelona could knock a person to the ground. I think the most epic was down a skinny alleyway filled with trash cans. There was also the distinct scent of hobo mingling with the trash smell…

  2. Nicole said,

    Garlic. Sweat and garlic. Enough said if you know who I am and what I’m referring to.

    When I was pregnant I could smell everything. Coming to work was horrible because of a certain person who lives to work out…and who must also live on garlic because the smell was absolutely nauseating even when I didn’t have morning sickness (like a mixture of sweat, garlic, and Hickory Farms sausage). I’ve only smelled it twice since I had Nick, though, so either he showers more, laid off the garlic, or my sniffer just isn’t near as sensitive…I’m thinking it’s a combo of the three. I’m telling you though, compared to that, Nick’s poop smells like roses.

    Not sure I should admit to this, but I was just sitting here and smelled some faint sweat and wondered “Did I forget to put on deodorant today?” In my defense, it was a 3-day weekend and I also forgot my allergy pills. Sneezing my head off is making me sweat.

    It has been a while since I smelled it, plus I don’t live in town but, there is a company that was burning turkey and chicken parts in an incenerator and the smell would blanket all of Carthage. It was like burt hair and old grease smell……P. U. !!!!

    A moldy orange in the bottom of the relatively fresh bag of organic oranges. It was sad.
    Gee, girls, whoEVER could you be referring to with the garlic talk!
    A friend of ours makes homemade garlic and dill pickles, with whole cloves of garlic in them, and Dan and one of his buddies ate the whole giant jar. We were camping at the time, and they were so proud that the garlic worked better than bug repellent-that is until they realized it was also girl repellent. I couldn’t even be in the car with Dan with the windows up for a week! Eck.

      I am sorry I eat so much garlic.

      I will start wearing huge gobs of AXE body spray now to mask the smell.

      Hopefully that will help.


    • nattya61 said,

      You smelled it to?!? I thought it was just us pregnant gals. Man…as Cleveland would say, it was “Nass…ty.”

      • Amber said,

        Actually I’ve only caught wind once, and that was in passing.
        I’ve heard a BIT about it tho 😉

    • Nicole said,

      I smell it on Tim now a lot and he was getting a bit worried. Turns out, he was sneaking Lai Lai’s for lunch! Jerk! Just kidding. 🙂

    • Kel/y_H said,

      But Adam, if you wear AXE to the office, the women won’t be able to resist you, no work will get done by anyone, and all the banks will collapse.

      • Amber said,

        Oh no, not the banks!

  7. Amber said,

    Oh great Adam, that’s just what we need. I have to say, while we’re making not-so-subtle attacks on office smells, that being upwind of the smokers section, and downwind of someone who occasionally overdoes it with the aftershave is sometimes a little overpowering.
    It doesn’t rank up there with garlic I’m sure tho.

    • adamthepugh said,

      “Rank” up there.

      Unintentional pun.

  8. nattya61 said,

    Oh, I have another one. We went to KMart on Sunday (yes, I know…they are as bad as Wal-Mart…but we were bored and hadn’t been there in forever), and I swear someone was smoking a crack pipe in the kids changing rooms…it was soooo bad. We didn’t even go in the changing rooms, but we could smell it in the whole kids/baby department. My throat was still sore yesterday. Thankfully Nick was asleep and didn’t seemed bothered by it.

    • Amber said,

      I like to pretend that shopping at any of Wal-Mart’s competitors is a public service!

      • nattya61 said,

        Agreed. Our weekend routine now consists of Target, Price Cutter, and resale shops. We should have stuck to it this weekend. Haha!
