Well ... I'm simply gonna need to stop breathing for awhile.
Last night, a skunk must have sprayed right outside our bedroom window flooding the air within. Ugh. I ended up moving out to the couch, and still slept with a pillow over my face, waking up to cough at the stench every now and then.
Early this morning, the air outside was clear, but of course - full of spring pollen and other allergens that make me sneezy, exhausted and nauseous. I took a Claritin and opened the windows for a bit.
Then I burned some candles. Not the scented ones that I bought a few months ago - I discovered they make my throat itchy.
Ran the air conditioner, but I'm pretty sure that skunk smell is right in the system now. Or just stuck in my nose.
So a few hours later, I've opened the windows again, only to discover that the special steely-scent that is north-end Hamilton every now and again is part of today's air.
I've called a couple of companies for quotes on removing a skunk.
Meanwhile, if anyone has a lavender-scented oxygen mask I could borrow, that would be fantastic.
