Smells Like Shit
We had our windows down on the way home from McMinnville which is about a 45 minute drive from Portland. (We got to borrow a car from a friend. It’s not very often that we get to ride in a car. It’s a special treat when we do. And let me just say, cars go so fast, really really fast.)
Anyway, as our hair blew in the wind, my girlfriend cleared her throat and said, “I know this sounds strange but the smell of cow shit is kind of comforting. It’s oddly comforting.”
I totally agreed.
“But,” I said, “real cow shit doesn’t smell like this.”
“This does smell different from California cow shit,” my Sacramento raised girlfriend said.
“Aw, but,” I said. “California is probably an organic shit mix of cow shit, chicken shit, sheep shit, llama shit, whatever kind of shit. It smells different out here. In the Midwest is just smells like shit shit sometimes. Corn fed heavy cow shit shit.”
We both sat for second with our noses tilted towards to the open windows.
“Isn’t it weird that we can tell the difference in the smell of shit?” she said.
It is weird.
Can you tell the difference of shit? Do you even give a shit?
