My New Fragrance

In preparation for the upcoming holiday, I've been stocking up on the essentials. You know, like corn, yams, chocolate chips...stuff I really need. The shelves in the pantry are getting a little crowded. I thought there was still enough room so I kept cramming things in.

Unfortunately, a bottle of Liquid Smoke got far too claustrophobic and decided to end it all by leaping off the shelf. When it hit the floor, the cap broke off, spraying about a tablespoon's worth of liquid. And of course, I was in the heroic act of trying to save the bottle so I got a good dousing.

Now, I keep smelling the stuff. I've already washed my face twice. Doesn't help so the stuff must be in my hair, too.

Maybe we'll have ribs for dinner to cover the scent. The Man loves ribs. He might just find me irresistible tonight.

I do love the smell of liquid smoke. In small doses.

that's hilarious. If I even walk into the same room as an onion, much less touch one, I smell like them for a week! It's a funny thought... whenever we need a little affection, maybe we could dab fry sauce behind our ears. :)

I have never heard of Liquid Smoke before, so I don't understand this story.

Ramsam - Its basically a marinade, smells like hickory smoke and makes meat taste/smell like its been slow roasted over hickory wood. Very powerful stuff.

Yeah, whenever I want my husband's attention, forget Chanel No. 5. Probably a touch of bacon is a better bet.

ramsam said...

I am so new to this idea....is it good?

Meat is man scent gone wild.

Great idea of blending in with the scent. I like to cook meat but don't want to smell like it. Poor liquid smoke, that was nice of you to save it!

Nat said...

Ha ha ha!

Jessica said...

That's one way to get a little preggo loving! What ever it takes it ok in my book.

Robyn said...

You better watch out, Jason is on his way over, he loves a women who smells like meat!

Brooke said...

Wow, I'm a late commenter. I worry that the essence of liquid smoke being in your pantry might be my fault? Did you buy that specific for a shared recipe? I sure hope not. But if so, I accept the blame. But, way to most heroicly save the bottle.

I read somewhere that the smell of pepperoni pizza turns a man on far more than perfume. (I'd say that's why we eat so much pizza, but that's really because I'm too lazy to cook.) So yeah, I was thinking that Scentsy should make a bacon and a pizza scent for men, liquid smoke too, whatever does it for them right?

Jo said...

Good thing you are already pg! I guess you could suggest Liquid smoke as a aphrodisiac.

I see you're at 36,003 words. Way to be ahead of schedule! Keep up the good work!
