A New Kind of Shampoo

Yesterday, I made a pot roast. It smelled delicious! Unfortunately, as I was taking it out of the Dutch oven to carve it, some of the juices splashed onto me. I saw the splat marks on my shirt, and quickly changed. The last thing I wanted to do was go into work,  having spots on my  clothes and smelling like a pot roast.


I ate my dinner and went to work. As I worked, I noticed that the roast smell was still quite strong. I wondered if it was just in my nose, or if it had splashed on more of my clothes and I just hadn't noticed it.


I made a quick trip to the restroom, and looked in the mirror. That's when I saw it. Beef juice in my hair! I hadn't seen it before because it was brown, just like my hair. 


I groaned and stuck my head under the faucet. After it was rinsed it out, I returned to work.


At least it didn't smell like rotten meat! That would have been really bad. So, what do you think? Would "Pot Roast" be a good scent for shampoo? If so, maybe I should market it!

  1. I would think that would attract dogs. Surprised yours didn't lick your head.
    We eat a lot of garlic in our food and have always joked we need to make a garlic flavored toothpaste. (Because nothing covers that smell!)

    1. Schultz didn't seem to notice. Maybe he was napping, and didn't get a good sniff.

  2. Might get some unwanted critters coming up to you with that scent haha

  3. Now you're making me wonder why food-scented shampoos are mostly limited to fruits. Why not pizza, peanut butter, and yes, pot roast?

    1. It would be interesting to know if those scents would attract unwanted critters, or make those around you hungry.

  4. That's kind of funny (I don't have enough hair to make anything stick but somethings in the beard...)

    1. You'd probably notice if something splashed into your beard.

  5. Not a good shampoo smell, especially if you're hungry.

  6. I'm sure Schultz would have been happy to wash your hair with his tongue.

    Love,

    1. If my hair was blond, it would have been very noticeable.

  8. I suppose you could have started a new trend in shampoo....there's no accounting to taste.
    Great story Dherry.

  9. That was cute. You may have just given someone a new marketing idea.

    1. We'll see. If you see Pot Roast scented shampoo, remember that you first heard about it here. ;)

  10. Hmmm, maybe not, Sherry :) But I bet the pot roast tasted delicious!

  11. My thoughts exactly Alex, I also had images of Sherry being pursued by a group of dogs.

  12. funny how Schultz let you out of the house

  13. Well, "they" say, a way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Maybe your hubby will like the new scented you? I laughed, sorry, Sherry. ❤️

    1. No. There wasn't much in my hair. If anybody noticed, they didn't say anything.

  16. I bet to Schultz that would practically be like perfume.

    1. Maybe they should have pot-roast scented shampoo for dogs. They have chicken flavored toothpaste already.

  17. There are worse things to find in your hair. I won't elaborate ;-)

  18. I wouldn't be surprised if pot roast-scented shampoo actually did exist somewhere already, LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL! That made me laugh, I've done this with tuna in a can and had the water spray on me! It's terrible smelling like food. I'm not sure it would be a good shampoo though! Ha ha. You might get a lot of dogs on you!

    1. I think I'd prefer pot roast over tuna! ;)

  20. Another problem with pot roast scented shampoo - I'd be hungry all day.

    1. Yes. Unless you just had pot roast for dinner. ;-)

  21. Pot roast smell can be kind of intense, so maybe not the best thing to have lingering around. I constantly spill food on myself though. I can be kind of an accidental slob sometimes.

    1. Pot roast is intense. It's amazing how long that smell lingers in the house.

  22. Ha! This has happened to me before. Maybe not with beef juice, though.

    1. Next time, I'm going to do a thorough inspection before going out the door!

  23. When things like this happen I keep looking at people who saw me before I could tidy up and wondering, "Did they notice?" And no, beef does not hold any hope of becoming a popular shampoo scent.

    1. I was wondering if anybody noticed. If they did, they were polite enough not to say anything.
