Mystery miasma of the day
Not that you asked, but there's been an extremely odd smell in my office for over an hour now. Sort of "vegetable decay + stale cigarette + distant skunk"nothing I can quite pinpoint, or identify as something that's likely to be in the office (i.e., almost definitely not skunk). It doesn't seem to be what might delicately be called a "personal" smell, but there's enough of a chance that it is that I don't want to say "Hey, what's that horrible smell?" Ergh. I wish I had one of those Elizabethan nosegays. Or even a strong cough drop.
(It could possibly be very, very bad lentil soup, or some other product from the "it's organic, it doesn't have to taste good" health-food store. Okay, but does it have to make the whole office smell like it's Take Your Flatulent, Cigar-Smoking Skunk To Work Day?)
