    I always carried those big eucalyptus cough drops for situations like this. They have a really strong taste and smell that tends to over power what I don't like.

    Probably smelled it, but since the cranial nerve 5, the trigeminal has the smell and taste branches,they converge at the same root right before entering your brain. Leading your brain to mistranslate/misdirect some of the incoming signals? That would be my guess

    If you're saying you *literally* have had a taste of poop in your mouth for 9 years, then I strongly suggest a dentist. If you're being satirical and saying your experience at the nursing home left you with a "bad taste in your mouth", then that's a whole different issue. The original poster was being literal. Somehow I think you're not.

    Just wait until someone rips a sock off in front of you, and you experience the wonders of dry foot flakes snowing down upon you/into your mouth/hair.
    Ah yes, the joys of elderdust
