Morning Creepshow

Ok, so I'm reeling from a grisly discovery this morning. I'm making a fried egg for the little guy when i raise the kitchen trash can lid to dispose of the eggshell and i'm bitch-slapped in the face by the smell of jizz. Unmistakable, don't you think? And, keep in mind, with my pregnancy nose, the smell is amplified by a thousand so that it actually resembles the trashcan of an irreputable sperm bank.
The kind of sheer horror that prompts one to stare into the snarled metal of a roadside crash causes my eyes to fall on a perfectly preserved tableau of bachelorhood on display in my kitchen trashcan. An empty beer bottle, a crumpled bag of Cool Ranch Doritos and a seemingly non-descript fold of soaked toilet paper. I know immediately this is the calling card of our roommate.
For a moment, I'm paralyzed with disbelief -- mostly because in my effort to squash down the almost-full trashcan, I touched that piece of toilet paper.
With my heart racing I tell Jason our kitchen trash smells of jizz. He looks at me like I'm nuts. I open it for him, HE ACTUALLY PICKS UP THE SUSPECT PIECE OF TOILET PAPER and shakes his head and says with a completely straight face, "I don't smell anything" -- leaving me feeling like I'm going totally nuts. But his next action is telling: He ties of the bag and puts it outside. AH HA!
I say: "Um, you would flush that, right? Barring a childhood raised by wolves, one would never actually put a jizz rag in the kitchen trash -- much less the kitchen trash when you're not living by yourself? I'm crazy, right?"
His response: "Yeah, of course. I don't know anyone who would do such a thing."
My response: Take out the bleach water and spray down the entire trash can and inside the trash can. All the while trying not to puke.
I'm crazy, right?

That IS pretty jacked up (no pun intended), but honestly I'm more surprised to learn that jizz has a smell.

um, i didn't think it possible, but doug's comment leaves me even more unsettled than the entire story preceding it. Dudes can't smell jizz, WHAT????

i think jizz smells slightly on the bleachy side itself.

i totally agree, pom. this is a universal understanding, or so I thought. Since telling this story I've actually had several guys remark, "Jizz has a smell?"

Um, yeah. It most definitely does.

Oh FUCK I'm sorry...ohgod let me wipe...HAHAHAHAHA...the tears from my...AHAHAHAHAAHHA...face...okay...okayokay.

I'm better not.

Anyway...jizz smells like sauteed mushrooms. And that's not a good thing.

Did you two wash your hands after picking it up...? Dude.


This really isn't funny. BUT...
