You need to read that title in your best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice!!!
And it's ok to laugh at yourself as you do, because you're going to be laughing at me fairly quickly!!
About 2 1/2 weeks ago I started smelling a peculiar smell all around me. It's hard to explain, but the best I can do is tell you that it was a cross between a skunk and coffee.
weird, I know.
I smelled it in my house, then started smelling it in my car, then out in stores and restaurants. I didn't smell it all the time or every day, but often enough that I thought maybe I smelled like a skunk.
I started watching people around me to see if they reacted to the smell....nope.
I asked people if they happen to smell a skunk....nope.
I asked my family if they smelled something bad in the house....nope.
NO ONE else smelled the smell.
And it was driving.me.crazy!!!
I finally decided to google it......probably not my wisest choice.
The first thing I found said that I could possibly have a tumor....
....in the area of my brain that controlled the sense of smell.
any guesses where my mind went from there?
Let's just say there were nails and coffins involved.
So, I emailed a friend who is a doctor and asked her opinion and if I needed to be seen or not. What I was really asking was....do I need an MRI and how soon can I get one?!!
The next evening, still waiting for a response and of course evaluating myself for other symptoms, my husband walks in the room and says "so you won't think you are crazy... (I don't think I am CRAZY, I think I have a TUMOR!!! )... I was just in the closet and got the faint smell of a skunk"
Really?!!! So I ran to the closet and started searching for something that could have died in there (if you knew me, you would know that is not beyond the realm of possibility) or thinking maybe a skunk died under the house...when I pick up my new TOMS I just bought 2 1/2 weeks ago.......
....and they smell just like a SKUNK!!!
I am not joking...the soles inside the shoes smell like a skunk. My new shoes......and I have been wearing them all over....hence the reason I smelt it in all different places!!!!!
It's not a TUMOR!!!!
