odd bits

I like the smell of:
  1. a new vinyl shower curtain liner.
  2. chemical fertilizer.
  3. fresh pulled prints.
Now it's your turn. What weird things do you like the smell of?

Ha! Me, too!

I like the smell of:

A new vinyl shower curtain liner.

My dog's ears.

Chinaberry trees.

I just changed mine this morning—right before I took a shower. That's what made me think of it.

You might be too young, but loved the smell of the freshly mimeographed (copied) papers in grade school. Get high on HOMEWORK!!!!

I hate the vinyl shower curtain.

Love the smell of:

My daughter's hair after a bath (that baby shampoo just smells different on her head)

Jalepenos (I love the way they burn my nose and the back of my throat)

Artificial Watermelon (be it in a clandle or candy or gum, I prefer the scent of artificial watermelon to the real thing. Now the taste is another story...)

The air outside after it rains

Winter (because you can just smell when winter is coming, as well as when someone comes in from outside in the winter, I always say, "You smell like winter")

**candle** (what the hell is a clandle?)

Dave—I remember the smell of ditto sheets. mmm...

TF—I can't stand artificial watermelon flavor. I love the smell of rain & seasons.

Jen said...

did you know you can wash your shower curtain in the washing machine and the mildew and water spots will come off?


...but then, you'd never get to smell the new ones...

I think I'd rather just buy a new one.

That's weird, I like the new shower curtain smell too. I wonder what it is about those.

I also love the smell of swimming pools and new electronics.

I like the smell of my dog Ego and my cat Titus - specifically, of my gradeschool classroom, and of new houses.

nyk—new electronics? That's then implys that you smell the electronics which just put this picture of the silhouetted man sniffing his dvd recorder.

MadE—I love the smell of fresh laid carpet in new houses.

...in my head. That second sentance should have ended with "in my head."

Mr. Fabulous said...

1. Those big black magic markers
2. New money
3. Ozone

vinyl shower curtains smell great.

Nobody said...

Ozone! I love the smell of ozone from photocopiers and laser printers.

The Boy said...

Ahh, the fresh blast of an airconditioner going off in your face, that mix of cold damp and ozone. Lovely...

TinaPoPo said...

Mmmm new shower curtain rocks. Also in that category are: new grill cover and new patio furniture cover. Both of which smell so good I want to chew them up. Mmmmmm.

The MERKIN MAN said...

The smell of new shower curtains make my teeth hurt.

I like the smell of:

1. Blank CDs (they stink, but I like it)

2. Skunks (they stink, but I like it)

3. When I have some really kickin' B.O. I catch myself smelling it over and over. I do not know why I do this.
