Sick as a Lighting Fixture

I've been sick for a couple of days, so I wasn't completely surprised to hear that I've been giving off one of those "sick" smells. (Although I have been showering regularly and brushing my teeth. In fact, I was a little chagrined to hear about the stench.) What surprised me was that it was Sam who picked up on it, not to mention his creative using of things in his sightline to describe smells:

Sam: "Ewww. Why do you smell like that?"

Me: "Oh, no! What do I smell like?"

Sam: [Looking about the living room wildly.] "A lamp."

Well, all right then. Back to the shower for me.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. So in the name of science (and curiosity cause I am freaky like that) I went and smelt our lamps. On and off.

    So you smell like dust? Or warm slightly burnt dust?

    Or perhaps you actually dust your lamps and then it would be plastic, glass or warm.

    Yeah, you smell like warm. Now get in the shower, I can smell your warm from here......

  3. Warm. I like that. And I also like the fact that you smelled your lamps for me. Kelley, you are a funny lady.

  4. If it were MY lamps - you would smell like dust and cat hair. Yup, better shower!
