When one hits the 'Start' button on a timer, it helps if one has actually SET the timer.
I have a green shawl I knit several years ago that has come in handy when I am feeling a bit chilly. It's also wool, so I have found I can wear it while my hair is drying and I don't get a cold, clammy back and a shirt that stays damp for most of the day. This is good.
But it was smelling like maple syrup* and that just makes NO sense. I don't think the thing has ever been NEAR maple syrup and never on the back...
So, I tried hand washing it. You know, in the sink, with a mild detergent, rolling the water out with towels and then spreading it out to dry. The whole nine yards.
And it STILL smelled like maple syrup.
I just... put up with it for a while.
Today, I put it in a mesh bag and threw it in with my dark load of laundry. It's currently spread out to dry, no worse for the 'harsh' treatment....
And it still smells like maple syrup
What is this, I don't even...
*as odd scents go, this is far from the worst, I know.
That... kind of broke my brain for a bit. I pulled up my friends list and started scrolling and saw a YouTube for a DA2 fan made clip in a new post from someone that I have never seen even mention DA2. Then scrolled down a bit more and saw the post where I had last seen the DA2 YouTube and... it had a Green Lantern YouTube.
And suddenly it made sense.... kinda.... Refresh didn't fix things, but leaving and coming back did. Weird.
Okay. It was funny from the start.
But when I saw 'Crabby disapproves -5" I just lost it completely.
