The rug, it turns out, was a patsy. Did the rug smell bad? Yes. Do I regret my $20 Wal-mart purchase of a new rug? No. But was it responsible for the seeping fetid smell throughout the house?
Turns out, no.
That was the ten pounds of rotted
tomatoes potatoes hidden in the back of a cabinet.
I have the cabinet open, trying to air it out and… people I don’t know. I’m going to have to place an emergency call to Home Ec 101.
It smells so bad.
