In middle school, Melissa S. told me that I had a big nose! And acting like a typical insecure kid, I yelled back at her with, "Well, you have big ears!" If only I had the guts back then to say what I could say now is, "The better to smell you with, my Dear!" But over the years, I've come to terms with my insecurity and have seen the good it has brought me. For instance, I'm the only one I know who can smell a burp from across the room...talent? I think so! But since I'm practically blind without my contacts, maybe inheriting a bigger nose was a gift... my innate sense of smell compensates for my lack of sight! So, the moral of this story is to accept and embrace and to remind yourself of the positive! And tonight I thought I'd share with you ten things I love to smell...
First Day of Rain (wet concrete, really)
Grandpa Ugo's Chicken and Potatoes
The times I wish I had no nose:
My Cat's Farts
