As much as I Love participating in Sunday Scribblings each week, I was thinking of skipping this weeks prompt.
Foul really didn't inspire me or turn me on! Meg/ Lainis inspiration for 'foul' is a foul occurrence each night in my own home. My dogs are always wherever I am. No fail, EVERY night their gas that is hovering around my feet in not only foul it is down right explosive. But, I didn't want to repeat their 'foul' story. Then, my husband reminded me of a great 'foul' take on the prompt, our stinky ride in an open-air train car in PA. BUT, Rick over at MyrtleBeachramblings had a much more stinky experience with a similar 'foul' story.
So I drew blank and worked on my writers island post. Then it hit me... I have dealt with SO many foul experiences in my lifetime.... It is LIST time! Grab a waste-paper basket and pull up a chair.
-when your child overflows the toilet and doesn't call you till he is knee deep in "IT"
-when your husband runs downstairs to see the damage on the floor below the toilet and receives "IT" on his head
-Your college students Laundry hamper with two months of dirty clothes
-when you arrive in Mexico city, tired, hungry and not bilingual and they serve you a dish you just KNOW is steaming hot fresh dog poop on a plate.
-When your naked potty-training toddler runs past the potty seat and squats on the patio to poop (and then smiles and says "Im a dog!")
-Children with stomach viruses who don't conceive the concept of 'running to the toilet' when they need to throw up.
-when you come home from a weeks vacation where you had your 14 yr. old neighbor coming in your home multiple times daily to care for and let your pet out, only to come home and instantly SMELL that your dog has been misbehaving UP and DOWN your brand new carpeted steps and You realize-14 year old boys must not have a sense of smell, and Husbands can't clean up dog poop without vomiting.
-Dead Flowers (this smell really really sickens me)
-The baseball cap your 12 yr. old won't take off for weeks, when you finally steal it for the wash you need smelling salts
-When your baby discovers they can remove their own diaper and finger paint the entire nursery.
-When one dog vomits and the other decides to.....EAT IT
-Urine smelling up- hospitals, rest rooms, sidewalks, nursing homes, crib sheets and of course Diapers
-When clients have the kind of Bad BReath that smells like 10 dumpsters and refuse the mint you offer
-when you pop an entire ringding jr. in your mouth and discover millions of ants in the second one! (my husbands single days)
-Anything that goes rotten in the fridge ( especially Potatos!)
-EGGs and EGG salad- (and farts after eggs) ( after broccoli) (after shrimp!) (after husband throws quilt over your head!)
-Last but CERTAINLY not least, Being the unlucky nauseated one to clean up most of the above mentioned mess!
( bet you wish YOU skipped this post!)
If I forgot your foulest.... please add it to my list!
