I decided to treat myself and OH to a Chinese this evening. He always has hot and sour soup. As I was piling everything into bowls, I noticed this strong ginger-like smell and asked him if he had sprayed air freshner or something.
He couldn't understand what I was on about. I went round the kitchen to sniff out the source of the smell and it was the hot and sour soup. I had never ever noticed it had a smell before, he (a lifelong non-smoker) tells me it's always smelled like that. So my sense of smell is obviously much better.
Now just dreading the next time the dog passes wind!!!!
