What's that smell?
So I've been eating this new packaged oatmeal at work in the mornings, it's maple and brown sugar flavored or something. It's decent, but the really strange thing about it is that it smells really, really strongly of maple and manages to make the entire office smell like pancakes. I work in a pretty big office and there are about 30 people who sit within pencil-throwing distance. Ever since I started eating this stuff, people have been wandering around asking, "What's that smell? It smells like syrup!" I haven't fessed up yet. And also, strangely, the oatmeal has the effect of making ME smell like syrup, all day long. Hugging my husband later in the day, he'll sniff my hair and comment on its new, sweet breakfast smell.
