So now my wife is pissed at me.

She tends to make mountains out of mole hills, I tend to make mole hills out of mountains.

My daughter started kindergarten last week. Apparently, according to her mother, she has "B.O.". Like, really powerful adult style stinky armpits. Like, man sized daddy just got home from a 100 miler in 100 degree temps knock you over backwards stinky armpits. Well, so she says/ This is a 5 year old we're talking about. I immediately thought "mountain" and said, well, if you are the only one who notices, then I wouldn't worry about it. If someone, like a teacher, says something, then worry. Of course, now I'm the bad guy because she doesn't want our daughter to be "that" girl. I don't either but I also don't want to be chasing windmills all over timbuktu either.

I mentioned the $8000 raise I just got but that didn't seem to help much.

and now I can't even go for a ride because it's raining. Nothing left to do but drink beer and eat.

"Well it's your fault for passing on your stink-genes, sweetcakes." That's the correct reply. Then smack her on her but.
I'll try that. :)

Is it really bad? Could be a metabolic disorder or something else or nothing at all...
I dunno, mom tends to exaggerate, so I always want to see for myself

He means raining like the nonsense swimming pool in the sky that turns up and then goes away at the end of southern summers, not the constant dreary grey drizzle we have here in the Northwest 9 months a year, right?

Two winters ago I was riding in a real downpour and a pelican landed in the road in front of me, 15 miles inland. If you don't ride in the rain, you'll miss the pelican.

I would say that if she's concerned, go ahead and make an appointment with the pediatrician. Problem solved. (or at least deposited in the appropriate lap.)

In the pacific northwest, if you don't ride in the rain, you don't ride...

That happened to my nephew when he was three. He somehow snorted a 1 inch long piece of styrofoam up his nose that began to emit extremely foul odors after a week or two. Hes now twenty something and is still not quite right.
