My taste buds are messed up. After craving no-bake cookies for weeks, I finally gathered the ingredients together (no mean feat here!) and whipped up a batch. BLECK! was my reaction when I tasted them. I was ready to throw the whole thing away when the hubby tried one and said, "Hey these are really good!"
Not the first time my taste buds have failed me lately. It happens on random occasions. Other times they work just fine.
And my olfactory sense is off too. Normally I love, love, love the smell of garlic. But the other day it came across as nasty, nasty, nasty. Then the next day? Just fine.
I've always been super sensitive to smells. Ridiculously sensitive. But lately that finely honed sense of smell is failing me.
Except when it comes to my fridge. There it works just fine. Despite being cleaned repeatedly (three times in two weeks) the fridge still stinks. And my hubby smells it too, so it's not just me.
It all started during conference when the fridge door didn't get properly closed before we left for the week.
Not surprisingly, we returned to a rather unpleasant odor. We cleared out the fridge, washed it well, and expected all to be okay.
Only it's not. It didn't smell for maybe half a day and then the stink returned. I cleaned it again. We bought baking soda. And then I cleaned it a third time. Each time the smell would briefly disappear but always return.
Whassup?! Maybe if I just ignore it, it will go away?
The smell, NOT the fridge.
And you have to wonder if the stinky, smelly, no good, very bad nasty fridge has messed with my super sensitive snout?
Last night I went to bed early and my dear, long-suffering hubby went to work on it -- cleaning it FOR THE FOURTH TIME. I'm almost afraid to open the door this morning though.
Remember that "Take me away!" Calgon commercial. I'm thinking that might be a really good plan right about now. If nothing else, it would smell good.
Oh yeah, I don't have a tub. Scratch that idea.
Maybe the hubby was successful in permanently banishing the stink. Wouldn't that be nice?!
I really miss my scented candles. Another item I coulda, woulda, shoulda brought but didn't.
ATTENTION: any ideas, suggestions, or wise counsel on how to dispel stinky smells would be welcomed and appreciated!
