Weird title, huh? Well, weird problem.
Anybody else’s Romantic Times smell funny?
I started noticing it about 3 or 4 months ago, and it’s consistent with each issue since. The pages smell like…old vegetable oil or something. I know I’m sensitive to smell (OMG, the perfume samples kill me), but it’s not my imagination. I left the last issue in the truck on a hot day and we all just about gagged next time we opened the doors.
None of the other magazines we pick up at Borders have the smell, so I don’t imagine it’s a storage issue. It’s just weird, and quite frankly I’m going to have to stop buying it if I can’t figure out why it smells and do something about it.
Anybody know who to get the smell out of a magazine? Truly bizarre. Why can’t I have normal problems like everybody else?
