24 hours later, Bob is resting peacefully in a mixture of salt, baking powder, and baking soda. He needs a fresh batch daily for about a week, then every couple of days, then every week until he is dried up. Spices are going in the next mixture. I am about 110% sure he is going to be smelling pretty quickly.
I think I now find it even more disturbing that he does not take the “Big Nap” in my fridge, but he sits out in my 72 degree house with only a Ziploc bag between my girls, myself, and goodness knows how many E-Coli germs and who-knows-what-else that are multiplying by the second on his decaying flesh.
