draft from 2017.
last night i was ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED that we had a gas leak. the husband was just about to leave for work and i went into the laundry room to take the clothes out of the dryer to fold them.
“that smell is back! you smell it?”
“yeah.. i do. man, that’s bad!”
“do you think it’s gas? i mean, it kind of smells like garlic… should we call?”
“well.. how about we call tomorrow. just leave the door open and the fan on”
the second he walked out the door i googled ‘can natural gas smell like garlic?’ apparently gas companies add the garlic smell to warn you of a leak. i called the husband and told him i was going to call our gas company THAT MINUTE. he said he’d come right home.
i have never packed a diaper bag as fast as i did last night. he called his mom and told her i’d be over with the boys.
long story short… it was garlic. the neighbors were cooking. ha!
