in our total psychotic excitement on closing day, we ACCIDENTALLY left a bag of garbage in the trunk of my civic. (i meant to throw it out on our way to the walk through.)

we didn't remember it was in there until the next morning.

it had fruit in it.

it was DISGUSTING. and the worst part? we stayed over at the house and there isn't a garbage can there yet (there isn't anything there yet, duh.) so i had to DRIVE TO WORK with the garbage in my trunk. my entire car smelled SO BAD. did i mention it was like 98 degrees (holla nick lachey!) so it just cooked all morning in my trunk. i went out at lunch in hopes of making an illegal dumpster run, but i CHICKENED OUT.

eventually i threw it out at a gas station garbage can. but the smell? she lingered. apparently it LEAKED and my car was so fucking stank.

did i mention that my PILLOW was in the car all day? it PERMEATED MY PILLOW. i may have to throw it away.

did i also mention that the a/c is broken in the civic? oh it was so nice and ripe to drive home. i finally dumped some carpet fresh in the trunk and vaccumed it out and it's ALMOST gone, but dudes, that smell will haunt me for life.

Oh, that is classic. YUCK.

When I moved into my first house, it was 100 degrees out and the house had no air conditioning (it was built in 1899). We unloaded our cooler of food into the fridge, not realizing some of our friends had loaded some meat into a second, smaller cooler.

The next day our house smelled SO BAD. It took us forever to find the meat. Plus, our fish died because we couldn't get the water temp regulated in the aquarium in time, and they were dying in their smaller portable tanks. We threw them in the aquarium and the water was still too cold so it killed them.

We had no garbage can yet either. We ended up burying our fish and garbage in our BACKYARD.

Eeeeeeeeeeew. Dirtybird. (But don't think I haven't done that after a good cottage rager.)

I'm going to try to find a way to use "stankonia" in a sentence today.
