Reason 1,497 you wish you were me

Wednesday is trash day around here. I put out my garbage late last night after I returned from a two day road trip. Apparently one of the bags on the bottom had a leak, so there was about four inches of rotten garbage liquid in the bottom of the can after the trash men hauled away the garbage bags. It has been hot the past few days. Maybe not Texas hot, but pretty close. The actual temperature was in the mid nineties at 11:00 PM last night and the heat index was still around 100.

You can imagine the stench from that garbage liquid. I could smell it when I came out the door. I am usually pretty tough when it comes to foul things, but I admit washing out the garbage can under these conditions made me gag a little. At least the maggots were not in full force yet.

Too bad there is not yet smell-a-vision for this blog. You will have to use your imagination.

In other news the wife made me some oatmeal scotchies last night.

No, I will not share them with you.

It's days like this that I'm glad I don't have a sense of smell.

Hmmm... What'd you do to earn those "oatmeal scotchie" points?

Uh, never mind. None-o-my-bidness I'm sure.

"What'd you do to earn those "oatmeal scotchie" points?"

1)Lots and lots of complaining. And begging. And crying.

2)I gave her a choice -- either cookie or nookie.

3)I am sweet guy and she wanted to do something nice for me.

You guess the correct answer.

Fred said...

I'm going with the SAFE answer, of course: #3.

Heh. Cookie or nookie...

Fuzzy Curmudgeon said...

Cookie or nookie.

I need to try that one.

Joe said...

It is a win/win Nathan.

Dick said...

I ask for, and receive both.

You guys just stand back and envy me.
