The Worst Smell in the World!

by Jessica
(Joplin, MO)

When I was little I used to think that the worst smell in the world was fresh liver or dead cows, living next to a farmer I got to smell this smell a lot. I used to hate going outside on days when he was slaughtering because the stench would clog my nostrils and turn my stomach. Some days I wish this was still the worst smell in the world!
After a while I learned that slaughter wasn't the worst smell ever. I figured this out around the time we got a male cat to help keep away the bugs and lizards that crawled near our home. He would pee on anything that didn't move and make it smell horrible. One day he peed on my favorite doll's dress and I was never able to wash the scent out. For the next 4-5 years of my life cat pee was the worst smell in the world.
I moved to the city a few years ago and I quickly learned that the worst smell is dog food. Sure it smells bad when it's dry and in your dogs bowl, when it gives you kisses full of dog food breath, or when you drop some on your kitchen floor and have to crawl around to make sure you got it all. That however is not the worst dog food can smell. The worst dog food can smell is when you live near a plant and it rains. The entire city smells like old wet dog food and you realize just how strong the smell is when the food is made.
When you live in a town where dog food is made when it rains you gag. When it rains all the dogs start to bark and bark until the rain stop, sometimes even after. To go along with the smell that makes you sick you get a cacophonous racket that just goes on and on. If you have a headache it seems like it will never end. This is why dog food is the worst smell in the world.
