Stinky and Smelly?!

This story is so funny that I find it's worth it for me to confess to something slightly unappealing about myself; I like to wear silk baju kurungs to work a lot but unfortunately with the financial restrictions of late, I'm not able to send them over for dry cleaning as frequently as I should. SO, what I tend to do is febreze them (heyyy I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this-already getting defensive!) before ironing them hoping it will help make them smell fresh and new again..

But this one morning the one that I wore somehow to me still had a lingering sourness to it but I just thought that since I'm wearing it, I'm probably and hopefully the only person who can smell it..

UNTIL, in the car, Raiyan made a sniffing gesture and said "Ugh.. smelly and stinky!!".. I was slightly taken aback with this and immediately thought "he's not talking about me is he??". So I asked Raiyan "who is stinky and smelly Raiyan?"and then Raiyan just embarassingly giggled "hehehe" so I then asked "Is MAMA smelly and stinky??" to which Raiyan replied with a cheeky laugh "Yeess!!"

You can only imagine what state of denial I must have been in in trying to disregard my own stinkiness that it took an autistic child to reveal it blankly to my face!! Needless to say, I went straight back home to change!

PS: I also loved how Raiyan felt embarrassed to tell me so meaning there is some level of social conscience in him to not tell it straight! :D
