But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
The women’s bathroom here receives a remarkable amount of traffic. At least 100 women trek through there, presumably a couple times a day, every day. Naturally, some of these bathroom visits will involve some stinkiness. To combat this issue, the cleaning people mounted an air-freshener, meadow-fresh flavor, to mask the smell of poop. In addition, an apple-and-cinnamon flavored spray can is available for backup, in case the smell becomes overwhelmingly awful.
Apparently it became overwhelming to someone one day and the additional spray air freshener must have failed to alleviate the issue, because later that day TWO MORE air fresheners appeared in the bathroom. This has made me wonder, every time I use the facilities, which is really worse: The smell of poo, which dissipates over time, or the cloying, sticky, almost gag-some sweet scent of three industrial-strength air fresheners over top of the normal poo smell. Because all air fresheners can do is try to produce a smell even stronger than the smell you want to hide.
It’s like trying to mask the taste of spoiled eggs by putting more pepper in your egg salad sandwich. You just end up with peppery-flavored spoiled eggs.
I would almost rather just have the nastiness all on its own.
