A midsummer night's stench

Y'know how air fresheners often have scents with outdoorsy names like "Fresh Breeze" or "Summer Afternoon"?
Bah.

During a recent drive, I experienced the following smells outdoors:

1) Cow manure
2) Some weird fungus-y mushroomy smell while I drove past a swamp
3) Rotten decomposing road kill
4) Skunk

Let's see Glade try to make an aerosol scent out of that.

I'm just glad that Daughter #1 got the skunk smell off of her before she got home from camp. YUCK!

I feel your pain..this morning it was like a big pot of soup outside..hot and muggy and all I could smell was cow shit and silage..yum

Mr. Fabulous said...

Stop.

You take drives to cool off and enjoy the A/C, right?

Are you doing so with the window open?

Oh Janna...I have so much to teach you.

Janna said...

Aisby: Ew! Yes, lucky you! :)

Matt-man: What does your upper lip smell like?

Peppermint: Yup, exactly!

Mr. Fab: No, no, no... I did NOT have the windows down. The smell still comes through the air conditioning; it pulls the air in from outside!

I have cats, therefore no need for realistic outdoor scents.

We had a skunk hit by our house last night, and I thought of you.


Let me rephrase that -- I thought of your blog entry "a midsummer night's stench"...

Sounds like you need to use that recycled air button.

Janna said...

Bundle: I have cats too. I know what you mean. :o

Morgen: Thanks for clarifying. :)

Lynda: I don't think I have one.

Lynda said...

It is usually next to the a/c and has some kind of arrow on it.

Janna said...

Lynda: Weird. Not seeing it. It's ok. I'll just keep blogging about whatever stinks.
