Stinky Fisherman Chronicles

11 posts in this topic

Me & a pal hit a lake last night that was about an hour and a half away. The distance, the bite, & the comfort of the sunflower made it hard to want to leave. So about 3:00 AM we finally decided to get on the road. This morning, looking down the barrel of a long day after my nap, I scurried as best as I could to get ready for work at 7:30 AM. Last thing I did, unaware of the condition, was put on the same wool jacket I was wearing last night. After shuffling through that long day of work I needed to pick up my daughter at her dance class. I worked my way into the dance lobby,(that's about 12' x 20' room and always packed full of dance mothers), and could not help but start to smell the stench of fish as I stood there-packed like & now even smelling like a sardine. The odor was about as bad as one could imagine. That jacket had definately seen better days! With all the stares and the shuffling feet away from me I started feeling almost obligated to quickly start explaining myself. I'm currently still pondering what I should've done. But instead I patiently waited for class to end and bolted outta the door as fast as I could. The others almost formed a "red sea" for me. Coupled with the long tiresome day I had already, I couldn't possibly think of a more fitting ending to a bad day! And if any dance mothers are reading this I promise it will never happen again!!!

Living in Minnesota, they should be used to the smell of fish. I think they should make a fish scented cologne. grin

you're "that guy" now.

I'm left wondering kind of work you do considering your coworkers didn't pick up on a scent.

Who knows? I'll probably be the topic at the water cooler for the next day or so?

I've pulled tubs of waxworms and maggots out of my lunchbox at work (kept in the fridge) and got a couple of off-putting looks.

I brought a minnow bucket in to my cube at work with an aerator going for a while recently when it was really cold out. Nobody gripped about it though. Cept for my boss who was wondering what the k it was. Im not sure if it smelled or not. I didnt notice anyways....
