Today I played a full round of that fun game called “Where the Heck is That Awful Smell Coming From?”
I’m very experienced in this game, having played many times. It can be performed in different locations throughout the house or car; today’s edition was held in the twins’ room.
Last night I tried playing only the short version, but the removal of a sippy cup full of curdled chocolate milk and the slimy ooze-covered book it was resting on (both extracted from under Little Boy’s bed) failed to produce the desired end-game result.
In other words, the twins’ room still really reeked.
So today I attacked the problem in earnest. I picked up absolutely everything from the floor, then vacuumed and shampooed the carpet. I also moved all the furniture, vacuuming and shampooing underneath, concentrating especially under Little Boy’s bed. I went over every inch of that room.
The twins’ room looks really clean now.
Unfortunately, IT STILL SMELLS BAD!
Come to think of it, this game isn’t really all that fun….
