Author: Jeannette Walls

I can be a pain." He laughed then, and bit into a donut. "You might have noticed."I laughed, too. "Might have."

All I can deal with is a cocktail. And then I pour the drink and smell the alcohol, and suddenly there I am, back in the lab. Alcohol, formalin, they both have that same sharp smell."
