Smells in my Elevator

Dear Reader...
     I have had a few elevator adventures and I am saving those up for another post... but lately I have been making note of the strange and wonderful smells I have experienced in my elevator.  First you should know that I live on the 20th floor and the elevator has a window/glass wall that looks over the city so I get a wonderful view of the street and all kinds of life going on there.  As soon as I moved here last fall, I realized I would be spending a lot of time going up and down to my car, to the street, to the mail box, and other errands.  I began to notice that when there was a smell in the elevator I had plenty of time to think about what it was... at one of my first discerning moments I decided I had to take notes... It was a strange mixture of ...
  • Cheetos and wet stinky dog
     I visualized a guy with a bag of Cheetos who had just walked his dog out in the rain.

The list continues for several more rides, I smell...
  • Tacos
  • Sweaty workout someone
  • Paint
  • Strong perfume - Bad!
    All fairly easy to understand why they would be in an elevator... then this one.
  • A sour Ginger smell
     I was visualizing someone was carrying some kind of sushi, with ginger on it...but somehow it was rotten.

Next came these...
  • Rotten Orange
  • Beer
  • Compost
  • Oddly metallic
     Then my state legalized the private use of small amounts of Marijuana... so
  • Strong smell of Pot! I tried not to second hand smoke any!
Finally I got some fairly nice smells...
  • Flowers
  • Cheeseburgers
  • Nail Polish remover
  • Perfume - good!
Now I am paying attention and taking notes quite often.  Here comes...

  • Gas
  • Yeast - like a bagel
  • Super stinky tennis shoes.
     This brings me up to today... I may continue my list or perhaps realise this is a silly exercise that shows how small my brain actually is, in any case, I do wonder what goes on in the cubicle apartment, life of my fellow renters that so many smells get out to the elevator and beyond.

Wow, I cannot believe I have been too busy to post!

      Well I have been very busy, the internship turned out to be an all consuming event.  I have claimed my life back and am now working on a relaxing, fun, spring break with family and friends....

      So I was having a little dinner the other day when I overheard someone talking about gun laws, being a CCL holder I was interested.  They were talking about fashionable ways for girls to carry, and this little tidbit floated over to me ... check out this really cute site that offers adorable purses, just right for that bulky item. :)
