Those of you who have seen Mallrats will know what I’m talking about, whe
n Brody is demonstrating the finer art of giving someone “stinkpalm”. If you’ve never seen it and don’t have any clue what I’m talking about, you can read up on it in this Urban Dictionary entry.
Moving on. It has occurred to me on more than one occassion that having a child is like having your own personal stinkpalm machine only, unfortunately, you are the one always being “palmed”. Stick with me here. Have you ever changed a really big and/or nasty diaper and accidentally gotten some of the poop on your hand or fingers? And no matter how hard or how many times you wash your hands, you cannot get rid of the smell. It stays with you for hours. I try not to change any diapers before mealtime if I can help it.
If anyone has any suggestions about how to defeat the stinkpalm, please feel free to let me know!
