ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 40 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 8-year-old Junior, our 5-year-old Everett, our baby and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

Something terrible happened and I'll never be the same again


I was sniffing Chuck's pants to see if they were dirty and I wasn't looking at what I was sniffing and there was a dirty sock stuck to the velcro tab of his pants and I stuck my nose right into the meat of the sock and the odor—omigod the odor—I stumbled backwards and fell into the dresser and cried out loud—dear God I cried into the air— "How could a human being produce such an odor??" and then I collapsed onto the floor into a little ball and I stayed there. Weeping. Sobbing. Shaking.

I'll never smell again.

Never!

Wow, I have the same problem in this house. I'm so sorry you had to come nose-to-sock with it!

I thought I was going to read that you picked up Chuck's pants to smell them to see if they were dirty, and you smelled the butt or something.

But a stanky sock is just as bad.

I'm sorry.

Now that would have been horrific.

Rule #5 I learned as wife to a man who goes commando...Pants on the floor mean they are dirty. Never sniff.

I'm no sorry! It's going to be OK. I can get the number of a therapist if you need it!

OMG. Now I feel like I've smelled it too. It's like Odorama on your blog!
