Originally I was going to skip this day because there is nothing pretty about the smells I remember from the girls. They weren't here long enough for me to associate a good smell with them. What I do remember is the scent of the formaldehyde after the mortuary workers embalmed them. I wish I had been strong enough to say no, but it is what it is and I wasn't in the right frame of mind to think about what it would be like the next day. So here it is, the chemical structure of formaldehyde.
