"If I leave some chicken on the fencepost, can you smell it for me?"


My neighbour: his wife is out - she's a carer - and he wants to know if the chicken is safe to cook. It's in date, but he lost his sense of smell and taste about a year ago, and it's slow to come back. Apparently most people who lose the sense of smell end up with food poisoning, because they can't tell if food is off.

Go on - tell me you had a weirder phone request? Please? Big Grin | :-D
