Me: Vaginas do not smell like fish. My vagina does not smell like a fish.
Fishmonger: I'm just repeating what they say. And it's not all vaginas. It's just some vaginas.
Me: I'm telling you the gay men lie. What would they know about vaginas anyway? They don't get close enough to a vagina to smell one.
Fishmonger: But I'm not saying all vaginas, and maybe not under all circumstances.
Me: OK, maybe if she ate tuna or salmon and the fish smell came out in her .... you know.
Fishmonger: Well, as someone who has a lot of experience on both sides, I can vouch that some vaginas smell like fish.
Me: Mine doesn't. And I don't think vaginas smell like fish in general.
Maria*: (Who has just finished a production of The Vagina Monologues, quotes in a singsong voice.) "My vagina smells like .... rain!"
Me: That's it. Me too. My vagina smells like rain.
Maria: Not really though....
Me: Yes, it does. It smells like rain. It really does. (To Fishmonger) It does not smell like fish. My vagina smells like rain.
Fishmonger: It's not necessarily a bad thing. It can be a good thing. Sometimes vaginas smell like nice, fresh trout.
Me: Nice, fresh trout!!! You call that a compliment? OK, I'm calling in an expert. (I turn to Martini, who has for some reason not been listening to this vagina conversation.) Martini, give us your honest opinion. Do vaginas smell like nice, fresh trout?
Martini: (long, thoughtful pause) I have not actually encountered that much trout.
