Regular subscribers will be shocked, shocked I tell you, to hear that I spoke to my sister on the phone yesterday. As usual, we did not talk about anything earth shattering. We discussed the Olympics, bemoaned the lack of a new episode of Project Runway on Thursday night, speculated about the cast of the next season of Dancing with the Stars, you know, the usual. While we were embroiled in these weighty issues my sister was preparing a marinade for Friday’s dinner. One of said marinade’s primary ingredients was fish sauce.
For those of you not familiar with fish sauce, it has a very strong, very recognizable stench – I mean aroma. Not to put too fine a point on it, it smells like dead fish. So once she poured the fish sauce into the marinade bowl her entire kitchen smelled like fish sauce. We anticipated that her three boys would not be best pleased, especially when they found out that horrible smell was coming from their dinner.
Suck it up, we said to these imaginary versions of my nephews, the house can’t smell like bacon all the time.
And then we had an epiphany:
Bacon scented air freshener.
Because really, doesn’t everybody wish the house could smell like bacon all the time? Well, except for my vegan brother in law? We should have known somebody else would have thought of it first.
However, there doesn’t seem to be an aerosol variety. I think Febreze or Lysol should get on that right away. And while they’re at it, they should make one that smells like brownies too.
