Mario's work is so close to home, that he tends to walk to work most of the time. So, his car doesn't get used very often. Sadly it spends most of it's time in the garage. Last month we decided that we should start driving it a little more.
So we decided to take it to dinner a few weeks back. I hoped in and said "woah! Smells like leftovers in here. Did you leave lunch in here today"
Mario -"I know, it's making crazy, it's smelled like sausage in here for over a week"
Me - "Did you check under the seats?"
Mario - "I've checked every where. This car is completely empty. Even the trunk is empty"
Me -"Maybe there is a squirrel in the engine"
After a while you get used to it, but it's not a good car smell. It's pungent. And honestly, whatever is causing that smell can only really get worse over time.
This weekend, Mario came in the house looking very happy, if not relieved. "I found out what was causing the smell in my car!"
me - "What was it?"
Mario - "A huge bag of peeled garlic! Way up under the seat! I don't know where the hell it came from"
Me - "I knew we bought garlic! I knew we weren't crazy. hahahaha!"
Of course he was looking at me like I was crazy...until a look of recognition came over Mario's face...mid August, we had one of our picnics with friends. The night before, Mario and I had gone shopping(in his car). When we got home and unloaded the groceries, I couldn't find the garlic for the life of me. "I thought I grabbed it. Or did you grab it when I went for the onions?" neither of us could quite remember. It was a complete mystery! And it was completely annoying because we both remember discussing garlic and having garlic in the cart...but where the hell were they now!
Well now we know! I'm glad all the mysteries are solved...what's stinking up mario's car and Where the hell is the garlic? Two seemingly separate situations come together in "The bag of garlic that funked up Mario's car for a month"
I'm glad it wasn't my car because I bet those little bastards were COOKED up good!!
