Friggin Onions

For the love of God! Why the hell do onions have to smell so damned bad?!? I know that there are people out there that just love the smell of onions. If you are one of them, please drop me a line because I’d love to get your perspective on onions.

I had a Super Star @ Carl’s Jr. during lunch today. I forgot to ask for no onions. When they brought the burger out, I didn’t really think much about it. My mistake, I can easily just remove the onions from the under section of the burger where the rest of the vegetables are. Four hours later, I’m sitting here with this onion smell on my fingers. Now, I’ve washed my hands at least three times since then (I have severe tactile dysfunction), and the onion smell still lingers. I just can’t get that onion smell off my fingers.

It’s not like the smell of onions is all that bad. However, for some reason unknown to me, onions smell horrible on my hands. Is it some sort of enzyme that I have on my hands that makes the onions smell? Does anyone else have this problem? I have no idea, but the smell of onions on me reminds me of the smell of a gym that hasn’t been washed in three weeks. Okay, perhaps that’s an over exaggeration, but this smell is rather repugnant!

    Haahaha! I sit here laughing as I too have onion-fingers. I am in the same boat as you. I really dislike the smell of onions, especially when my fingers are raunchy due to them.

    Why do I have onion-scented fingers? I was cutting onions for the chef salad I made earlier for me and my parents. That was a great salad though. Mmm Mmm Mmm.

    lol I hate the onion smell on my fingers so i try not to touch them. But love the taste of them. Last week I made baked salmon with lots of garlic and spicy mayo. I couldn’t get the smell of onion off my hands for days. They should invent a cleaner that will remove that horrible smell. I tried vinegar, cascade, and dish soap couldn’t get it out.
