The Nose Knows.
...well, the nose knows a bad thing when it smells it.
So...sometimes, smelling ISN'T such a pleasant thing.
In fact, today, I just smelled something that is definitely up there on the top 5 bad smells.
Today's smell: the smell of apathy, mixed with a little gutter punk & meth-breath.
Yes, these are the terms I give to someone who doesn't care about anything...no longer bathes, and tends to no hygeine needs, because, quite frankly---they're just not as much fun as getting high.
So...I could take the high road & discuss all the various factors that influence a person's predisposition for substance use that can lead to a state of addiction.
Yeah, I'm not going to do that.
Right now I'm going to b*tch about the smell.
Today's current smell has been outdone in the past by the following:
1) exploded breast tumor
2) deteriorating skin graft
& today's smell is tied for 3rd place with the following: the GI bleeds (both human & animal...because I've actually had the opportunity to smell both. they both stink.)
Oh, the many many joys of working in hospital.
