    I had plastic weather sheeting on my windows all winter, since my windows are really drafty. I took it off a couple days ago when it was sunny and 70 degrees. So, of course now it's a wet 40 and wintery, with gale-force winds blowing right into my house thru my drafty windows... And I smell a smell that seems weird.

    Could it be a dead mouse, maybe snapped into a long-forgotten or unchecked trap in my ceiling? Could it be some mildew in my bathroom; maybe I haven't replaced the bleach tab in the toilet? Could it be some moisture coming in thru the drafty windows and settling into the house and giving it that weird, wetish, deadish smell?

    Or, am I just imagining it?

    My folks are coming for the weekend, so I guess I better clean that bathroom and check those forgotten mouse traps and spray some "Fabreeze" around.

    Still... I'm intrigued.

    Hmmm. Is it me? I think I showered last night. Can't really recall.

    Musty bed linens? Maybe I need to do laundry; it could be the pile of dirty laundry over in the corner.

    It seems stronger over here, but also over there by the desk.

    And in the kitchen, it subtly changes.

    Something rotting in my fridge? Old cheese?

    I'll keep you in the loop.

    Maybe you have a yeast infection?

    Look in the attic. Maybe something is alive or dead up there.

    From The Odd Couple -

    Oscar: I got brown sandwiches and green sandwiches. Which one do you want?

    Murray: What's the green?

    Oscar: It's either very new cheese or very old meat.

    Murray: I'll take the brown.

    Maybe you've got a poltergeist or perhaps even a demon?

    Bob Villa in last weeks episode of This Old Haunted House...

    "Hmmm, looks like you've got some trapped souls in your wall, here, in the long run that'll definitely cause some problems."

    Sprinkle a little sillica around the area... While you're supply of salsa in the home may dip; problem solved.
