Having lived quite some time in Appalachia
And other rural areas
I often heard we need to go outside
To blow the stink off.
I must be doing it wrong.
I always come back carrying more stink
Than when I left.
Hahahaha! I have never heard that term but it sounds like “blowing the anger off.” What does it mean??
It means “get your butt outside and play!” 😉 It really means that, but depending on who was saying it, it may not sound ‘just’ like that. 🙂 But it’s a recognition that being inside all of the time is not so good for you. 🙂
Hahahaha! I love it!

LOL! Somehow I have a feeling you’re doing it just right.
I’ll take your word for it Russ. After the hike yesterday in 90 plus heat I did not smell too pretty 🙂
May I suggest deodorant?
Now you tell me Marissa…..you’d think that would come with the expression “go outside and blow off some stink”.
You would…you would think that…
I learn every day…..
Never heard of that. You sure it’s stink and not stick. I see you have a stick. lol 😉
That’s my hiking stick, which played a part in creating the stink. 😉
Oh, my. We heard this as kids…all the time. I thought we got worse being out there as well. ☺
Maybe it’s a different kind of stink they mean 😉
I have never, ever ever heard this saying before, and I LOVE it! It does not have a west coast feel about it, but I’m about to introduce it! I wonder how it will play! LOL!
I hope it sweeps the coast Debra! 😉 Tell those kids to get out there and blow that stink off!
This sounds hilarious, except I have no idea what it means! Blow the stink off?
It means get outside and play instead of sitting in the house getting stale. 😉 I love the saying 🙂
Oh! That is such a cool saying! I like it too, now I know what it means. It does sound funny though 🙂
I’ve never heard the expression before, but I’d guess the idea might be that the bracing wind airs the clothes we’re wearing and freshens us up. I’m not sure if it’d actually work, though.
Well it was an expression used to tell kids to get outside and get fresh air. I like the fun of it. 🙂
It’s good advice, too! 🙂
Ha ha ha – stink is in the nose of the sniffer!
Hahahahahaha! That is the truth Stacey!
I love this saying! Thanks for giving me a little smile this morning. 🙂
😉 you’re welcome April. I think it has a certain bit of charm.
Yeah…that stink can linger. Ha!
Oh tell me….. 😉 My poor husband!
ooh, i’ve never heard that either, but i love the meaning )
It’s quite fun isn’t it Beth? 🙂
I had never heard of it, we say go blow off some steam. To all those young ones who sit playing on electronic devices “Go blow some stink off”!
Yes! That inside, electronic stink, is the WORST! 🙂
Haha. Well, if it’s crazy hot out then yeah. We have a neighborhood skunk and several neighborhood dogs. There are many nights when it is definitely stinkier out there than in here and we have to rush to shut the windows!
🙂 We came home the other night and I saw what I thought was a HUGE cat….but that plumed tail quickly showed me differently. I told everyone to get out and get in the house!!! And don’t go in the direction of that tail!!!! I was terrified we’d get sprayed before we got out of there! I feel this one PIF !
I’ve never had that experience, thankfully. It does sounds rather frightful. Luckily it only happens outside our house, but it happens so often around here! I could see how it would make someone want to move!
They are so cute and so stinky…..hmmmmm……reminds me of my kids. 😉
Haha. I know what you mean!
When I was trucking I always kept the windows shut while on I-95 in New Jersey for the same reason – the drivers called it “stinky-side”
Ha! 😀 Funny you say that. Twice this week I had to roll my windows up on the way to work because of a stinky side. 😉
