To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to request an exchange on my son’s olfactory parts. It seems that when you supplied all the parts for this child of mine, you accidentally inserted a vulture’s sense of smell into him in lieu of a human’s sense of smell.
I submit the following as evidence:
Most human beings like the smell of such things as:
A good steak
My son likes the smells of such things as:
Used model rocket engines
Boxes in the freezers at the grocery store
Used model rocket engines smell very much like sulphur, which smells like rotten eggs. And rotten eggs smell like something dead. And vultures like the smell of dead things. And my son, as I indicated above, likes the smell of used model rocket engines.
Thus, the following equation must be true:
My son’s nose = vulture nose
A vulture, as you know, is a bird. My son is, for all other intents and purposes, human.
So I respectfully request an exchange of parts.
I understand my request may be outside the limits of your normal service agreement, as my child is approaching the age of seven. However, it took this long for me to really notice the problem. Yes, I suspected something was off when he was three and would open the freezers at the grocery store and deeply sniff the frozen pizza boxes. I thought it strange as well when he asked me to leave the car door open while I filled up the car’s gas tank because he liked the fumes emitted from the pump. But honestly, it wasn’t until he said he was going to start collecting used model rocket engines because they “smelled so good” (with deep sniffing inhale) that I really became suspicious.
When some toast burnt recently, he was very excited when he asked “What smells so GOOD?”
And the clincher, what prompted me to write, was the day he was home from school because he was sick and he proudly announced “my farts smell like burnt rocket engines! Doesn’t that smell GREAT?!”
If you would kindly mail the replacement olfactory parts to me I will insert them myself.
