Anyone else?

It happens infrequently enough that you don't see it coming. You walk out the door with the children, ready for an innocent outing. You open the car door and THERE IT IS. A stench, rising from the vehicle. Why? Where? How? You search frantically while the children ask you a hundred questions and give endless suggestions. Is it a sippy cup long forgotten? Maybe an abandonded bag of snacks? You check the trunk, under each seat, behind the seats, sniff things you don't even want to touch, and it's still a mystery. Am I the only one this happens to?

Hilarious! You are so not the only one!! Most days Nick can't stand that stinch. Me? Well I'm just used to it. There are those occasions where I have to stop and find the source. Which reminds me of a smell we found one day that would make you cry. After searching, we realized it was a container of earth worms left from the fishing trip the day before. The poor things had baked in the sun all day. Worst smell ever. So what was in your car this time SB???
