Ooo that smell…

I think that’s a song.

Stumbled across another interesting blog today.  This might become an addictive habit of searching for blogs to which I can relate.

Anyway, the blog in question,  The Odd Broad, had a post about subway smells.  Obviously, SB was attracted immediately.

Do you play the “What’s that smell game?”  SUBWAYblogger sure does.  However, it’s not always that easy to play.  During peak commute times, it hard to move around to explore and trace down the scent.  However, on a not-so-crowed morning, it may not be that difficult to locate where your local bum has taken a leak on the platform.

In case you didn’t know, the drains along the platform (usually where the wall meets the floor), bums use as their private urinals.  Also, they tend to head to the ends of the platform.  They will walk all the way to one end or the other and let loose off the edge.  Just an FYI for the next time you stand near the platform edge or near a drain.

So yeah, playing “what’s that that smell” can be fun.  However, when all you want to do is get away from people after a long day at work, smells can push you over the edge.  Nothing like standing face to face with a sea of humanity on a hot summer day with the smell of rotting Indian food lingering in the air.  Yum.

  1. Hi! Glad to know someone other than me plays this stinky game. 🙂 It’s funny you mention the peeing…subway puddles of any sort tend to gross me out now. Never can tell what I might be stepping in…
