Smells like Curry!

Addison has been addicted to the movie 'Ratatouille' and more and more wants to "cook." He usually pulls out a tupperware bowl and a wooden spoon and stirs around anything he can find... ripped up pieces of paper, washclothes, or whatever will fit into his bowl. One day last week he must have yearned for a more exotic experience, and found some curry powder in the pantry. I, unfortunately, did not discover the curry powder until later when it was spread all over the bathroom counter and sink. Thank goodness for Clorox Clean-up, or I would have a flourescent yellow bathroom counter! Later that day I could still smell curry, but I told myself it must just be lingering in my nose-- then I saw the smallish pile of curry powder on the carpet in the living room. I reluctantly pulled out the vacuum, having the feeling that if I used the vacuum to clean up the curry now, it would smell like curry every time I turn on the vacuum after this...I was right. It's like a trip to India when we vacuum now...a very cultural experience.

Oh my! I am not a curry woman. That would certainly send me overboard.

Our house smells like a urinal in Uzbekistan every time I vacuum, so I wonder what we sucked up at some point.
