My sweat stinks.
Now, I know what you're thinking. You're all: "Duh. Everybody's sweat stinks! Who do you think you are? The Queen of Funky Stunky?"
Well, yes, I see your argument, but really. My sweat REALLY stinks.
After a run, I sometimes hug my husband, and he's like: "Ahhhh! I'd rather snuggle a skunk! Go shower!"
A shower is great for washing the sweat stink off ME, but my running clothes? Pretty much all ruined by my reek. Even after washing, these items emit a foul odor.
I know some of you will recommend an expensive sport detergent, or some of you will downplay the stench of my "clean" running clothes as mere hyperbole, and for those, I have two comments:
1. I'm not paying extra money for fancy sport detergent. Because running clothes are supposed to be vile with perspiration saturation. That's the smell that informs other pedestrians that I'm "on the left."
2. It's not overstatement. It's fact. Again, I'll refer you to my husband -- who is not a guy with a delicate nose -- who once told me to either leave my running shoes outside, or set them on fire because they were stinking up the bathroom. And, you should smell what HE does in the bathroom!
So, there you have it: I exude a vile scent. But, I'm not ashamed. I just warn that you steer clear of me after a run. I'll clear the room.
