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.

"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....

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
