I can kill a man with one blow.

I said I would post something else so that you had something other than my last post to look at. Of course, now he only thing I have to talk about is how bad my breath smells. A_ made fish and a caesar salad. The salad was the real deal with garlic and anchovies.

I could actually kill somebody by breathing on them right now. It is so not right. I'm about to go brush my teeth, but I think I will smell for the next few days.

Speaking of stinky breath, if anyone knows about whether babies are supposed to have stinky breath and if there is anything to do about it, go tell Rachel.


Ok, that's all I have for nasty bodily functions today. But don't worry - the garlic will no doubt migrate to my sweat tomorrow. Stay tuned.

EDIT: I have been terribly lazy and have neglected to put a gazillion people in my google reader. So if for some reason you want me leaving inane and insane comments on your blog (and don't already do it) tell me to whats what and to add you. Do it now while I am feeling guilty.

  1. Not the kind of post I was expecting from the title. I will be disappointed for a while but I will get over it.
    I would love some crazy comments from you! If you deem my blog exciting enough feel free to let loose!

  2. Oh snap! Another Torchwood/Who fan?!!
    I'm in love! If he turns straight and contacts you I get dibs on sloppy seconds!

  3. I find the best cure for stinky garlic breath is fruit...especially citrus. I have nothing for the sweat, though. Good luck with that.

  4. Oh, dear. Right before heading to the doctor this past week, I ate leftover carrot salad (which is basically dressed with lemon, parsley and a shitload of raw garlic), that had been marinating overnight. It was pungent enough that I could smell it the very instant the seal on the fridge was breached, even though it was stored in the fancy "odor lock" tupperware thinger. Oh, and I followed the carrot salad with spaghetti with Sockarooni sauce, which is it's own version of onion/garlic paradise.

    I could still smell my own breath hours later, even after brushing and mouthwashing, and over the super-strong cinnamon gum. I'm sure that's the reason why my usually-affable doctor was slightly short with me- not because I'm an obnoxious, borderline hypochondriac who simply refuses to quit talking...

    Rah! Rah! Rah! for stinky garlic breath!!!

    ps There's a friend of ours who has had us over to dinner at his place (well, his wife's place, too.) several times, and each time, we tell them that next time, they're coming to our place, but inevitably, they always invite us over again so quickly that there hasn't been time to make arrangements for a date at our place. Anyway, the last time we were over there, he relayed to us his hatred of the smell of garlic, the taste of garlic, etc., and now, I almost want to rescind the (potential) invite because I don't think I can cook without garlic. I mean, seriously. Who hates garlic so much that they can't even be in a house where it was recently used to cook with??? I just don't get it.

  5. heh. am reading the comment above mine, and noting that even the breath-busting powers of lemon and parsley had NOTHING on the garlic insanity going on in my mouth the other day! Behold the power of the alliums!

  6. Is that why they make that godawful Pledge flavored citrus toothpaste?

    I'd rather stink!

  7. I presume that because A made the salad for you he also partook of it. We have the awful issue that I love garlic and my husband doesn't, so he abstains and I eat for both of us, and then he complains endlessly.

    Have you planned any strategic errands to run tomorrow with your new (and presumably temporary) odor?

  11. I guess vampires are not a problem at your house tonight! I love garlic, as well, and usually use a lot of it when I cook. It is a problem if I bring leftovers for lunch. I have to wear a mask all day, so any onions and garlic I eat for lunch I am usually smelling the rest of the day! Not all that fun. Thank goodness for gum!

  12. I agree that this was not what I was expecting from the title (kinda bummed!) I say breathe away - now if in 3 days your breath still smells like garlic (like a guy I work with) thats kinda scary stuff!
