My grandmother has been known to do #2 and warn people that “it stinks to high heaven, I’ve left the window open but if you need to go there now you might want to bring in a gas mask.”
My mother’s #2 has been known to make me gag; she doesn’t seem to notice it herself. She’s visiting right now and there have been times I’ve walked into the house and gone to the bathroom almost tripping over my handbag, to open the window and close the door. Then I open the other windows in the house so it can go away. One of those times she had been out of the house for hours :eek:
Their two smells are different, and Grandma’s is clearly linked to diet. The Bros and I have a pact to let each other know if we or our bodily functions stink - so far they haven’t told me anything, so other than asparagus #1 I’m reasonably sure there isn’t any particular stench to my bodily functions. Plus, with a 5yo and 2yo kids around, believe me: if they go to the bathroom and it smells bad, they let the world know!
Maybe it’s a difference in diet, rather than one of gender?
