That said, whichever you choose, thanks for spending time with me and enjoy! That awful smell again. Not quite rotten eggs… worse. More like rotten eggs fried in tar. Jo Lynn couldn’t get that smell out of her head, even after she was awake and on her second cup of coffee. She lit scented candles in an effort to give her brain something else to work on in the odor department. Not that she thought it would do any good, it never worked any of the times before.
