    A compliment only The Husband would appreciate

    September 24, 2007

    K:  OK, I’ll let you come into my messy house as long as you don’t look around.

    The Neighbor:  PLEASE!!!

    K:  No housekeepers over here.

    You read that right.  HousekeeperS.  She glared at me.

    The Neighbor:  Have you guys been making beef jerky over here?

    K:  No.

    The Neighbor:  Cause it smells like beef jerky. 

    Of all the smells my house has suffered under accusations, the “beef jerky” suggestion was a first.  Only moments before, she was, by far, my favorite new neighbor. The jury has now gone back out, in case you were wondering….

    All I’m gonna say is, a 6 pack of beer and a 6 pack of cupcakes had better miraculously appear on my front porch very soon.

      I guess its better than if she said it smelled like old people (which is what our house constantly smells like despite the continuous airing out and burning of good smelling wax-melty things).

      Even if somebody’s house really did smell like beef jerky, I don’t think I’d actually tell them that, especially if I didn’t know them super duper well.

      So, I am buying The Husband a dehydrator seeing as how you (like me) make everything from scratch. I will include my family recipie (only you will get that). There are worse smells in the world than homemade food. Case of beer, check. HOMEMADE cupcakes with fresh lemon curd and raspberry French butter cream, check.

      I’m thinking commenting on a beef jerky smell would be a compliment. On the scale of smells, that’s got to be on the plus-side.

      Is that that the sinfully, lowly price for appeasement? Sounds more like an offering at a votive candle stand to the bacchanalian Gods.
