How to Create the Worst. Smell. Ever.

Step 1: Open can of tuna packed in water with can opener.
Step 2: Slosh tuna water all over countertop and new copy of "O" magazine.
Step 3: Mop up with paper towel, then wrinkle nose at tuna smell.
Step 4: Throw away unread "O" magazine.
Step 5: Use cucumber-scented spray cleaner in vain attempt to mask smell.


You have now created the worst smell ever! And you can trust me on this, because I'm a veteran of the Smelly Infant By-Products years. Cucumber and tuna doesn't sound bad, in theory. In reality, it is stomach-churning.

Washing Indian food off plates while wearing a brand new pure white shirt.

Also, pouring coffee while wearing a brand new pure white shirt.

In fact, forget about which particular tasks you do - just don't purchase and wear pure white shirts. Ever.

Traveling to Cape Cod on Friday afternoon and leaving Cape Cod on Sunday afternoon. Come Friday morning and leave early Sunday morning. You can thank me when you get here. Saturday to Monday also works.
