A mysterious smell


Tonight after Acrogym we picked up Indian takeaway: butter chicken, beef vindaloo (they asked if I wanted hot or medium, it's hard to know with a new restaurant but I said medium - so lucky I did! I could barely eat it even diluted with rice, I had to keep a glass of milk handy, I hope I don't suffer too much tomorrow) and salt and pepper squid.

As we got in the car, Jasmine commented on a horrible smell. For a moment I couldn't smell anything, but then there was a strong unpleasant fishiness that we could all smell. Was the squid badly past its use-by date? We drove home with the windows open, smelling it all the way, me thinking that I would have to throw out the squid as soon as we got home - straight into the outside bin. But we got home, took it inside, I smelled the squid up close... nothing. Light odour of spices and cooking fat. Minimal squidiness. Smelled everything else. Nothing. Went back out and checked the car. Nothing.

Maybe we followed a garbage truck home, with our car windows open. It was very odd.

  1. It might have been something outside of your car that you were smelling, which is good. Better than taking something rotten home!
