malodorous
it's wednesday night, and that means more excitement with "drug discovery" class. we sit at a large u-shaped conference table, while the professor sits in a tv at the end of the classroom. one of the students here was thoughtful enough to make popcorn and distribute it on three paper plates around the table. she placed one plate right next to me.

unfortunately, the smell of popcorn outside a movie theatre makes me sick. i politely thanked the popcorn-provider and moved the offending platter a few seats down, quietly explaining my aversion.

right before class commenced, a student arrived and took her customary seat next to me. she had apparently just bathed in perfume. a lot of it. the popcorn didn't stand a chance.

there is no polite way to pick up a student and relocate her.
