So yesterday, there happened to be a permeating perfume of sludge mixed with rain water mixed with foot fungus mixed with mildew mixed with a mash of whatever can be possibly dragged in on the bottom of one’s sneaker. And where did it come from? What or, god forbid, who could have caused such an overriding stank to form in the main hall of the library?
. . .
None other than the newly-replaced floor mat by the front door of the library.
If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
