Raise your hand if what you smell on yourself doesn’t seem to be as bad as if it were from someone else. Or maybe you can’t believe something could actually smell that bad that you actually keep sniffing it. That is my story.
Today’s cartoon wasn’t really inspired by a smelly sock but by something I sneezed up recently. The force of my sneeze expel what I thought was a piece of my lung in my mouth. It was like a hard little ball. Actually, I figured it might be a food particle and I didn’t want to swallow it so I pulled it out of my mouth. I couldn’t identify it by sight so of course I smelled it.
WHOA!!! It was like a ball of the worst bad breath imaginable. But for some odd reason I kept sniffing it not because I enjoyed it but because I couldn’t believe something so dreadful could come out of my body.
After viewing this cartoon my wife said I should have drawn a fart because you never seem to mind your own brand like you do someone else’s.
The product of my gut flora is the finest around.
Others tend to disagree, though . . .
I am most likely one of them.
Hahaha! I remember the first time that happened to me. I thought I had coughed up a bit of a peanut. After the initial tactile test, I HAD to smell it.
Whoa!!! That reeked like Cheetos and toes. I’m like, this came from my throat? What do other people have to put up with? 🙂
Anyway, I think we are all kinda immune to our own odors (or smells, if you’re polite). For a bit of TMI, I was in a stall “adding ice cubes to the punch bowl”, when another dude came in to commit the same atrocity. Within minutes, the restroom went from being mildly fragrant to outright horrendous. I imagine he was saying the same thing.
My wife and I fight constantly over whose farts smell the worse, but I truly think that she beats me. I feel that mine has the slightest scent of roses at least.
haha…somehow I knew you would be in the same boat.
My wife knows that her farts smell worse than mine…but the actual BM (as he mother call it), I am the hands down winner
This is priceless, Bearman and so true to life! All of my smells beat the finest perfume, in fact I don’t wear perfume or deodorant so I am as pure me as they come!
OK…someone else will have to tell us the 411 on your non deodorant wearing scent.haha
I don’t normally smell my socks but I agree that even your worst fart seems more tolerable than someone elses minor fart. I wonder why that is???
Someone needs to do some scientific research
Certainly a target for multi million dollar congressional grant.
I took Molly to the Vet this afternoon and the vet stuck the thermometer , well, you know where he stuck it and then when he pulled it out he smelled it.
At that very moment I was glad that I never decided to be a veterinarian.
BTW just for clarification Molly is my dog. She has had an upset stomach and nausea for a couple of days and we couldn’t get rid of it so we took her there. She is spending the night.
Thankfully I knew who Molly was. But that would be a better story if someone else was reading this and thought it was your wife.
Vets are more affordable.
Wonder if the vet can tell me why I am scratching myself all the time
I will admit nothing!!!! Thank goodness it was a sock 😉
You got some down under smells?
Cat scratch fever?
I don’t know what you’re… Aw hell. Sniff…
Please don’t tell us what that was
There is NOTHING I can say here that will come across as remotely palatable. … although we’re talking scent… I’ve said to much! [wink]
Thank you for your restraint
On a serious note, if the particle was white, and about the size of a grain of sand or a small pea, it was probably a tonsil stone. It’s just food particles that build up over time in your tonsils. Nothing to worry about health wise, but they will give you bad breath. Smelly little buggers. 😉
Someone on G+ mentioned that Bill. Gross to think about…grosser to read about. If so, then I am glad I sneezed that bad boy out of me.
Okay, I’ll admit I do this. I admit it.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Woo hoo…the first honest woman on here.
Many people smell there socks, but usually it is to check if they are clean. 🙂
How many wears before washing?
Best post ever. Ahaha This is why I love your blog!
Don’t you have something to confess?
I have no confessions!
Doesn’t mean you are free of sin
I’m wearing a gas mask next time I visit.
Don’t you have to be invited?
I have rockets. It’s all the invitation I need.
Just miss the roof this time
Thank you for grossing me out early this morning while I was eating breakfast.
Well you could have visited last night when you were eating dinner
Yup. You know it stinks and you still smell it. Haha! ;o)
Thanks for stopping by Abelle
You know what comes next, don’t you? Scratch n Sniff!
I need to figure out how much it would cost for that.
Wasn’t there a character in Porky’s that liked that smell?
Oh yeah…Kim what’s her name that ended up on sex and the city
I’m just glad your site doesn’t come with smellovision! 🙂
It smells of success
No need to smell socks. If they stand up by themselves in a corner, they are still suitable for your younger brother to wear. If they run when you approach, through some underwear at them.
If they run when I approach hopefully they are running to my feet. haha
This execute is called sock fetish, unfortunately for the pongy inclined it is soon replaced by hobo’s underpants, cross dressers ‘G’ strings and in extreme cases old farts baggy knickers so don’t even go there Bearman or anything could happen 🙁 Eeeeeeuw
I worked next a girl that would sniff her shoes and her bare feet at her desk all the time. When I was really lucky she would cut her toenails at her desk too. WTF.
Where did you work??
Eat N Park corporate office. Not sure where you are from, if you have heard of the Eat N Park restaurant chain.
mmmmm I love those breakfast pastries with the powdered sugar on them. They are like crack
