I kept the church nursery yesterday. The rest of the day afterward, I have had the lingering smell of wet diaper in my nose. I didn't actually change any of the diapers myself. I changed my clothes and it still persisted.

Today it is the smell of newborn/breastfed baby poop. (For those who don't know, it's not a regular poop smell - it's sort of fruity, but very pungent.) I have no idea where it could come from since the only possible "culprit" yesterday, I didn't even hold.

Are olfactory hallucinations a sure sign of insanity?

Would you rather we answer that with a yes or a no?  >:D

Better to know than to wonder.  ;)

Clean your shoes, even if they don't have any obvious signs of malodorous substances on them.

I've had another injection in the eye. (This may become a monthly thing. Dratted eyes.)

I now have a very lovely red spot which will only get bigger over the next few days before proceeding to fade. It looks awesome. ;D

Found it! Not the shoes.

Recipe for mimicking the smell of baby poop:
Spill 1/2 gallon of apple juice on the floor. Mop it up with a bucket including Murphy's Oil Soap. Toss the wet rags into the bathtub or suitable warm/damp place that will allow them to sour quickly. Sour apple juice alone won't do it, you need the Murphy's to add that little extra je ne sais quoi.

Excuse me, I'm off to do laundry.

Penguin the foster cat has started eating again after nearly a week of almost nothing. The Gooshifud was apparently a little rich for her system. The diarrhea didn't smell all that bad, considering, but she sprayed in All Over the adjacent cabinet.


Possible cat shart?

I had a dog once that had an upset stomach and before I could get her outside she exploded her bowel contents all over my legs and floor. Poor thing, all I could do was laugh as I cleaned it. It was like ssomething out of a movie.

A friend of mine has a full-grown pig - a very large pig.  She tells me one day she was giving Piggy a scratch on her nose when Piggy farted - and followed through.  Poor Piggy apparently looked surprised, like 'was that me?' before turning around to look at the result.  Friend said she was lucky she was in front of Piggy as the follow-through spattered all over the walls of the pig pen.  She usually gave Piggy a bum scratch...  not any more.

Wow! We have very similar skin, but I am envious of your eyebrows. I also have translucent skin under my eyes, so people think I'm tired and it is just the veins.

My ears are usually itchy in the spring and fall with pollen activity. I cleaned them with cotton swabs on Monday, and then yesterday felt a big itch, reached my pinky finger in my right ear and found something hard and solid. It was a wax rock! Complete with dead skin cells and glistening wax! It was the size of a small corn kernel. I was both disgusted and impressed.

Mine itch all year round. Darn allergies. I'm pretty impressed too! I never seem to generate that much ear wax. Mine will itch like crazy, i'll use qtips on them, thinking there is a ton of gunk, and they come out perfectly clean.

Our cat, Pabst, has a thing for human bodily functions. And our bathroom door doesn't latch properly. I can't begin to tell how many times he's tried to play with our um, leavings. He is very quick for a large kitty- one can barely get the lid down before his fuzzy paws swoop in. DH has nearly peed on his head all too often, because Pabst likes to bat at the stream. When I was pregnant and had morning sickness, I would invariably end up having to push him away whilst being sick. This was especially interesting when the baby started moving and would kick in protest. Since having the baby, Pabst has occasionally been mesmerized when I've been pumping breastmilk, and tried to attack my chest. His saving grace is that he is very fluffy and handsome.

This is a Special Snowflake story, but I thought the gross element was a bit much for that thread.

Oldest Dragonet works in the Home Goods section of a large retail store. She stocks and maintains the shelves of sheets, towels, bathroom accessories and so forth.

One of her duties is to repackage sheet sets that people have removed from the package.
I'm not sure why people do this - the packages are clear and one can clearly see the colour and pattern. The size and type (top or fitted) is clearly shown on the packaging.
Even if one just *had* to check the texture, the package could be opened and easily reclosed.
Pulling the whole sheet out is not needed, but people do it all the time.

So she has to refold them and put them back in the package. It's a tedious process since they have to be refolded exactly along the packaging lines. Sigh.

The other day she was repackaging a set of sheets which had been returned. They came - naturally - all crumpled up.
When she spread them out to fold them, she found...stains. And hairs.  :o :o :o :o

She immediately bagged them and took them to the appropriate person.
Then she went and washed her hands - multiple times!!!!  ??? ???

Ewwww. that's just nasty. I will admit i am quite fussy about the "feel" of sheets, but i will just open the package, and touch it. i'd never take them all the way out. sounds like someone bought them, used them, did soemthign on them, and returned them. BLECH.
