Seriously, this just shows how energetic these copper ions can be when they are freed up. :thumbsup:

No kidding. I assume that the unpleasanter aspects of the aroma had much to do with the scrubbie operating in a soup of hot water, dish soap, and food particles. I know the smell of copper well, but this was rather of a different order.

If you can find any one thing positive in your response to the smell of your copper scrubbie, it would be this: you still have a sense of smell. . .your olfactory bulb is intact and has not been attacked by the Covid-19 Virus.

I don't believe I've heard that one before, but I like it. Considering said pebble's reluctance to leave, you must be wearing lineman's boots.

My brain has this annoying habit of immediately playing, internally, songs at the least provocation. No sooner had I read that phrase than Wichita Lineman started up. Great song, so no problem there. Could have been much worse.

I thought the metaphor was well known. It's certainly venerable; goes all the way back to the invention of shoes, I believe. A late friend used to colorfully call a persistent annoyance a "raspberry seed in one's cavity". Evocative, but cumbersome to say, so I can't borrow it.

Or I'm not trying hard enough to take them off.

So it has been reduced to this: "Even your dog abandoned you? At least you have your health."
