As I was dropping off Da Baby at da sitter's dis morning I was behind a garbage truck preparing to unload a dumpster. You didn't have to know dat a garbage truck was there if you had your windows down as da aromatics fill da air.
Then wen I was dropping off Da Keiki at preschool had anoddah garbage truck - different company but same smell.
Naturally three times a charm so as I was riding into work, right before you jump off da Nimitz overpass you can't help but flow through an invisible bubble of..... hauna.
Wat is it about garbage dat it all smells da "same"? It comes from different households, different foods, different garbage but yet no mattah wat company, wat area it all smells da same.
Wassup Wit Dat!
It's one of da worst smelling lingering odors there is and I'm pretty surah no one can deny they haven't smelt it before. It sucks wen you driving and stay behind a garbage truck cause once da smell enters your ride, da smell just attaches itself to everything like da suckers on a tako. You only got two options aftah dat, roll up da windows and suck it up (ha ha ha) or leave it open using aerodynamics to swoosh it out while you endure da next eternity desperately hoping it clears before your next inhale. It's just like da Seinfeld episode wea da valet guy had irremovable B.O.
I no understand how dis one smell can last so long - even longer than one fut. Wen I see one garbage truck and can avoid it, I most definitely do. If I see it far enough ahead, all da windows go up and I move to da furthest lane possible. Have you evah had da "juices" get on your tires and undercarriage? Haaaauuuuuuuna! No joke. Be forewarned do not follow da garbage truck going on ANY incline.
Heaven forbid you even get a drop on your physical self cause it'll call for a scrubbing decontamination protocol like no other. Even then you're only acknowledgement of an all clear is to wat? Smell for it again no?
Sadly, I have to ride through da Nimitz smell of shame everday, TWICE. In case you don't know, da C&C of Honolulu houses some of their garbage trucks under da underpass right across da Veteran's Hall and I'm not sure if they hose down da trucks there but it wouldn't surprise me if they did. Da most ironic thing about it? I wouldn't have thought da homeless could stand it 24/7 but they still there but das anoddah blog to share latah.
Wat's da worst smell you evah smelled? Is there a smell dat oddahs tink are supah hauna but you don't mind it? How many of you smell your cut toe nails? No lie. Have you evah had a smell dat just wouldn't go away? Wat was your decontamination protocol?
