What I Gave Up for Lent...

Each day, for the past couple of weeks, sometime between the hours of 11 and 3, there is a moment, where I gag and a smell that permeates the air around our cubes. Sometimes multiple times a day.

It's someone with tuna fish. The smell of tuna fish makes me gag. I think it's one of the nastiest smells. Looks nasty. Just plain nasty. And for someone to eat it at their desk. And throw it away in their trash can so the smell lingers.

I realize it's Lent. I respect that. But, must we all give up our non-fishy air for 40 days? We have a cafeteria, a large one. It's beautiful weather; there are places to eat outside. Our cars are near by; you can eat in your car. I don't care. Please just don't eat that stuff in the cube on the other side of mine.

I have some co-workers who eat fishy stuff all year around. And the smell goes very far. Ick! I am starting to gag thinking about it.

Okay, I am one of those 'fishy' Catholics...but if I have to dispose of tuna around other workers, it goes into a ziploc bag, so no one else has to smell it. After all, it's my, Lenten sacrifice, not theirs.
