Submariner wives either love it or hate it.. and sometimes both in the same day.
To me, it smells a lot like a mechanic's garage. [I think that's why I like it; because though I don't have many pleasant memories of my mom's second husband, who was a boat mechanic, I always had fun when he worked late and me and Scott would play in the huge garage.] The smell is really Amine, which is the chemical in the submarine's atmosphere that is used to take out moisture.
I totally didn't know that until I Googled Amine just now.. I just knew it was a chemical. Learn something new every day..
So anyway, it's what my husband smells like every single day. It means that he's home, and that I have him for a little while before that big black bitch gets him back. (Sorry if that offends a grandparent or something.. but it's true.) So when he brings his huge sea bag in, and dumps the dirty Amine-smelling laundry in the middle of the living room, I can't help but smile. As much as it adds to my day, I love doing his laundry when he first comes home. Know why? Because it means he's home.
