an ill wind
I wish I could say "gross" a la Stewie Griffin, he really says a good "gross."
When we got home from Napanee we were both physically ill. We went out there to do some errands and have breakfast (we hadn't been out for breakfast for a while). When we walked out of the restaurant, we could smell manure. This isn't uncommon. The restaurant is at the top of a hill, it was windy (a hot wind, very weird). We got into the van and headed off to do our errands.
Rather than dissipate when we got into town, the smell got stronger. The hotter it got, the stronger the wind got and the stronger the smell of shit became. We literally ran from the van to the stores. It's made us both feel sick.
I'm not sure where it is coming from but I can't imagine for a second that breathing that in anymore more than we did is healthy. I feel really sorry for folks living in Napanee, that shit is nasty.
