Dirty Truth: Day 4

It may take me forever to finish all 30 of these because I always want to post other things in between, but they will get done!  I promise!  So today's question:

This story comes straight from my senior year in high school.  High school already is hard enough to make it out alive, but to add an embarrassing story on top of that is enough to make you want to crawl into a hole and just die.

One morning I woke up to a weird smell.  I didn't think much of it and just thought my mom was cooking something strange for breakfast.  It kinda smelled like garlic.  But then the smell got more pungent as I stammered into the kitchen trying to figure out what was going on.

Come to find out, our dogs had chased - and scared - a skunk under our house.  Scared skunk = weird, pungent smell. The skunk smell had gradually dispersed throughout our entire house.  It finally chased me out of the house and I actually went to school early.

As soon as I got into my car to head to school, my bloodhound nose seemed to smell the skunk smell still on me, but I was hoping it was still in my nose hairs.  But as soon as I got to school and got in my group of friends before the bell rang, I asked one of my friends nonchalantly, "do I stink?"

He smelled me. "OMIGOD WHAT IS THAT SMELL?!"

I take that as a yes.

I explained the story.  They laughed uncontrollably.  Ha, ha.  The bell rang and I went to first period.  While my economics teacher was talking, kids were whispering, "what is that smell?"  Think Edward from Twilight.

I finally just yelled out, "it's me! I stink!"

The worst class period was drama because both me AND my sister were in this class together.  Which meant skunk smell x2.  It became easier just to explain it at the beginning of every class and just sit in the back like I had a contagious disease.

That night I couldn't go home because the house still smelled like skunk.  I grabbed some clothes and stayed at friend's houses for the next 3 nights.  I bathed in lemon juice and tomato juice and it still took DAYS before the smell came out of my hair.

Of course I was called the skunk girl for more than just 3 days.  And everyone in the high school still remembers the week my sister & I came to school smelling like ass.  Thanks guys.

  17. Hi everyone here. What Christine Coleman said is very true though i may not know her. I experienced it first hand also. It was this organization called consumer loan firm (C.L.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of my also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them with their email via: consumerloanfirm@gmail.com and get a loan from them. Thanks
