So for the past couple of weeks we’ve smelled gas in our house. I originally thought that it was car exhaust somehow creeping into the house, but last night at 12 a.m. our street was dead quiet and all of a sudden our bedroom was CONSUMED by this gas smell. It was horrible. So we shut our windows, smelled some pumpkin scented candles to rid our noses of the gas scent, and tried to go back to bed. I think there’s a leak somewhere – whether in the house, I don’t know.
I’m going to ask our neighbors today if they’ve smelled gas on the front side of their house (that’s the only place we have smelled it). If not, then I’ll know it’s specifically something going on with our house. Either way, I think Denis is going to call the gas company this weekend and have them come check things out – I so cannot handle my house smelling like car fumes.
But it reminds me of one of the funniest scenes in a “Friends” episode – the one called The One Where Ross Can’t Flirt. He attracted to the pizza delivery girl and attempts (miserably) to flirt with her. After many failed attempts, he asks her how the pizza joint cooks the pizzas, and she says they are made in gas ovens. This is what happens next:
Ross: Gas? Wow! Intense.
Chandler: (To Monica) If this is the way all the Gellers flirt, we don’t have a problem.
Ross: (to Caitlin) Hey uh, y’know that smell gas has?
Caitlin: (wanting more than anything to get the money and leave this horrible, horrible place) Yeah.
Ross: They put that in.
Ross: The gas is odorless, but they add the smell so you know when there’s a leak.
Caitlin: (getting more desperate to leave) Well okay!
Ross: A lot of other gas smells…
Chandler: Oh the humanity.
Ross: Meth-methane smells…
Caitlin: Y’know what umm, actually I, I really, I should go.
Ross: Oh but I-I-I haven’t paid you yet!
Caitlin: Y’know what? That’s okay, you guys have ordered so many that this one is on me! (Runs for her life.)
(Ross closes the door slowly.)
Ross: (To All) Was I talking to her about gas?
Chandler: More so than anything else.
That scene leaves me laughing out loud everytime I see it.
