The Man Who Sold the Stink.

There is money to be made in selling the stink in gas, would you believe. D, who was up here this week, has a new job for the company that sells the stink in natural gas.

I had never give it much though, to be honest. I knew that somewhere gas got a smell, because it went from requiring caged birds in mining shafts, to that smell when you leave your oven on by mistake. But it never occurred to me that the addition of mercaptan to the gas was done on purpose and for safety, or that there was a job where you went round selling the stink.

If anyone job ever demanded fiction, it was the Man Who Sold the Stink.

Well, maybe. I'll see how I go.
