Of all the things worth complaining about these days, this isn't THAT high on a list...but fuck it, this is my blog and I'll do what I want.
I walked out today for lunch and was immediately hit with one of the worst smells imaginable. Vomit? Poo? Sewage?
Nope - I'm not sure exactly what it was, but I know what it smelled like: Patchouli Oil. Note that I would have linked to many vendors who apparently sell this stuff, but I don't think they'd appreciate it, because I'm here to say that this stuff smells like ass.
Or, as comedian Patton Oswalt puts it, "Like dirt that's been fucked by a hobo."
Personally, I think it smells like what it often is -- a nasty oil used to cover up dirt and sweat from folks who don't regularly bathe. It's just gross.
Now, I know that part of my hatred of the stuff stems from spending four formative, college years in Santa Cruz where it's pervasive beyond belief. But it's never been clear to me WHY that's the case.
Patchouli Oil, or Hippie Juice as I like to think of it, smells awful. Please...don't go there.
