My House Smells Like Burned Potatoes

Less than 2 hours ago I cut up some potatoes thinking that I'd get them started boiling and we'd have them with pork chops.  Just mash them down with our forks and cover with butter, salt and pepper.  Yummy.

Apparently I had the water on too high because I became aware of a bad potato smell while here in the office (on the second floor).  I checked and not only did the water all boil away, the potato was starting to burn brown in the pot.  My husband does have a bad sense of smell... he's practically in the next room and apparently didn't notice.

Just a little bit... hubby got the pot looking shiny and new on the inside with a bit of elbow grease. :)

Random factoid: it's not just your husband.

In general, women's sense of smell is something like 10,000 times more sensitive than men's. There was a lecture at the school where my mom is head and I went to see it. The lecturer brought that up as he talked about similarities and differences between male and female brains.
