Smelly old people's homes
There is a distinct smell that wofts from an older person's home when they open the door.
Its hard not to cringe as they invite you inside. As I walk along the corridor to their favourite room I mentally want to throw open every window, rip up the carpets and throw the cat outside.
I am at an age where I can still smell. Some elderly must lose this ability. It is important to me that my young visitors can come and see me as I age and leave with happy memories.
So what is it that makes old people's homes smell so bad? Is it the locked windows and stale air? Or do we as humans just rot from the inside and exude a smell that is unique to the elderly? Whatever it is I want to make sure when I can't smell anymore I have a pleasant home to welcome everyone else.
