Ok, so this has NOTHING to do with sex, but I still need some advice. I have a friend, well actually, she's my hairdresser and does my son's hair, too. Our sons are friends and spend time at each other's houses. Ok, so here is the delicate matter, her house REEKS, I mean smells so bad it makes me gag. It's so bad, I have my son shower and change his clothes when he gets back from a playdate. It's gotten worse and worse, to the point where I can barely sit through a haircut when I go there, fearing that I might vomit at any moment. I am very sensitive to strong smells, but even my son and husband admit the place is pretty rank. The source of all this stench is the dog they have. It is very old and it smells like it is decaying, yes, decaying. Another thing is, my friend's entire family smells of this dog. The other night there was a function at the school, and when her husband walked by I could smell his scent long after he was out of eyesight. I am at the point of not allowing my son to go to their house anymore, but I am torn. I'd like to be able to tell my friend that her place stinks, as I doubt she even realizes it. BUT, how the heck do I broach the subject? She's going to wonder why my son and I have stopped going there. What am I do say if she asks why?
