What's that Smell?

That's a question I've fielded about 20 bajillion times the last few days. It really doesn't help that I can't smell a thing at this point in time. So I wasn't to alarmed when I heard "what's that smell". It's could be anything. "No it smells like burning plastic (smell learned the other night when someone touched a plastic item to the lamp)". Well I was all at attention at that, even before one of the other girls added in with "yeah it smells real bad".

The culprit?

So yeah, apparently Moe tried to microwave a snack. Luckily that was all the damage done. The tiny flame I noticed when I walked into the kitchen (at which point, the smell had permeated the mucus in my nose) extinguished itself before I could grab the fire extinguisher.

I would almost have preferred the smell of dead rodent....

That's the worst! A plastic jar of peanut butter caught on fire last year, don't ask, and it took a little bit to get that smell out of our house.
