I have left the house three times today and each time I got into my vehicle I had the same reaction.
So I did what anyone would do. I told twitter.
Later I thought, huh. Maybe I should explain that.
The story starts last week when my neighbor and I went to Costco. I had to buy a big pork loin for work.
Now, some of you are just nodding your head and reading. Some of you are wondering what kind of person has to buy a seven pound pork loin for work. I say, the kind of person who blogs about pork for money. I know my career path is not the normal one and I accept that. I think the neighbors view me as somewhat of a sideshow and I accept that too. I don’t know many other people that when asked how work was this week can say “Good. I got three people to go see Duran Duran in Toronto, I wrote an essay about losing a post, the redesign for the sports site is up, I made t-shirts for the elementary school’s drama club and I wrote a post about smoking some pork.”
Life is good.
Weird, but good.
Anyway, my neighbor and I went and bought a bunch of big things at Costco. When we got home I mostly unloaded my car. I didn’t bring in the two pound box of Cheez-Its or the massive 96 load thing of Tide.
Guess which one leaked.
I was pissed off too because that was $21.99 worth of laundry detergent. I’d say $ 7.50s worth is still in my trunk and the rest is in my yard.
Really, the neighbors adore me.
Even after my very, very half assed attempts to get the laundry detergent out of the way back the car has still the distinct and overwhelming smell of Tide.
Until today. I don’t know what rotted in there, but the car smells like Tide and farts. I’d air it out but it won’t stop raining.
I’m actually still a little bit puzzled as to how we walked around Costco for a good 20 minutes leaking something bright blue without noticing it. For now I will just assume that I somehow busted it putting it in the trunk and stop stressing out about the $21.99 that is killing my lawn instead of making my clothes smell like a mountain spring.
