Your Nose Knows
From the scent of baking pies and boiling potatoes, to a roomful of people with floating aromas of lotions, potions, and potables—not to mention kids’ dirty didees—trust your nose to twitch with the …
FUG (fug) n. – the heavy air in a closed room, regarded as either oppressive and murky or warm and cozy (Chiefly British). [WW #140]
Have you ever suffered through a stuffy Holiday gathering with the fug of heavy kitchen aromas, blended with the heavier scent of Aunt Shirley’s perfume, and old Uncle Henry’s heavy sweat, swirling in a battle for your nose twitches?
May all your experiences with Holiday fug eschew the oppressive and bring peace, warmth, and the flow of cozy air to your soul.
Word Challenge: FUG. Good ventilation is the key to a Holiday without the stench of fug. Unless of course, it’s the warm fuzzy kind. Consider the source and the season as you fit fug into your week of aromatic writings.
