Write about a two different smells...one that triggers an unpleasant memory, and one that triggers a happier moment.
Nope, I am not following the prompt today! I am going to write about two smells; one that is unpleasant that triggers a pleasant memory and a pleasant smell that triggers a happy moment. What are you going to do Brother Nature and Fivesixer , fire me? Ha!
The first smell is rotten, icky seaweed. The kind that has been on the shore for a while in the sun. You know the kind, when it is really ripe! This reminds me of "stinky poo bay". It was the bay right before the turn off to the road the cottage was on. I know you all have heard about the cottage before but I really loved that place. I wish I could go back to it but even if I did it would be totally different!
The second smell is odd, almost indescribable. It reminds me of my Aunt Marge's house in the country. I used to love to visit with my cousins there. The smell though...the smell wafted from the back room at her house. The room where the summer things were stored, where onions and other bulbs hung in old pantyhose. Old tools hung on the walls. But the smell... it was a cross between basement, attic and old. I can smell it as I write this but in all the world I can not describe it.
