The Worst Smell In The World

By, Nan Claire Duggar Falkner

Once upon summertime, Mike went fishing with his friends to the mountains in the beautiful Colorado Rockies.  They went to a new spot to fish where they had never been before.  It was beautiful and picturesque just like a postcard.

Three days later, they had eaten all the food they brought, drank all the spirits they had brought and all of the beer! They had caught 28 really good trout.

Impressed with themselves, they scaled, cleaned and bagged fish.  Proud and happy, they took them home and placed the fish in our garage freezer.

It wasn’t plugged in.



(Authors note:  True story. We hired a company to take the fridge to the dump.  The title of this story IS accurate!)

  1. Ohhhhhh, that SMARTS! All that for nothing. I feel sorry for Mike on that one. As for the smell, EVERYBODY I feel sorry for. Fun story, Nan.
    Five out of five Sponge Bobs.

  2. I can’t believe the person who loaded the fish into the freezer didn’t notice it wasn’t cold in there. Costly in many ways. Poor fish gave their lives for naught.

  3. Entertaining story, but, the ending stinks, for the Mike and for anyone in proximity to the rotting fish. At least Mike has the memory of a good time with his mates and the beautiful landscape. 🙂
