Something Is Rotten in the State of Denmark

January 11th, 2005

Something in my kitchen smells like its curled up and died. The source of this most unpleasant odor seems to be coming from my garbage disposal, the contents of which largely remain a mystery to me.

What oh what could it be?

Perhaps the remnants of last nights Purple Monstrosity smoothie? The soy milk, while giving a pleasant texture to said Monstrosity, has been known to curdle when left out. I am remise to admit that, because I was in the midst of an Alias marathon (thanks VS), I did not clean the blender til this am, and indeed found curdled soy in the base.

But no, I did not detect a strong smell while cleaning the blender. What then could I have placed in the disposal to make it smell like roadkill stew?

Perhaps it was the mound of sweet potato shavings. I did, I’m sorry to say, dump a bunch of sweet potato skins in the disposal yesterday. You see, I was too fatigued (ie lazy) to walk the 10 steps to the garbage can which is where I typically deposit skins and peelings. Indeed, the odiferous culprit strikes me as something of the organic variety.

But then I think, how can something so wholesome emit such a god-awful stench? I mean it smells like armpit at the fat folks festival on a hot summer day.

Perhaps this is a question I may never be able to answer. I do know this much though, this marks my first real blog entry in several months, and in an interesting twist, I’ve found I’ve resorted to classic hannihaus blogging: talk of smelly things in the morning. Many thanks to SORM without whom this haus would be in shambles. Thank you for all your work on the template!

    Try putting a 1/4 cup of lemon juice down the disposal and sink. Or,… if you follow the smell could you possibly find Bella’s hiding spot for dissapearing items? Keep us posted.
