Not even a huge one mind you, no dramatic fever or hacking cough. Just a slightly deeper voice, a nose that is running like a fountain and a sense of smell that’s pretty screwed up. So I am not sure if I am really smelling what I am smelling. Ergo, no review this week.
Unless you’d like a review of Vicks Vapo-Rub.
Having you’re nose, as it were, kurt of joint is an interesting experience that I would be very upset to have made permanent. I have enjoyed this little perfume hobby of mine for nigh unto 40 years now (which is amazing since I am 29 years of age) and a total loss of it would be a bad thing. Not as bad as losing sight or a limb, but not fun. Oddly I was talking to someone who knows someone who had exactly that happen. She was a gourmet cook, but without a sense of smell her sense of taste was affected and food really doesn’t interest her anymore. She also said that there are dangers inherent as well- she can’t smell smoke, so she can’t smell if something in the kitchen is burning.
I’ll be very pleased when the schnoz is back in working order. In the mean time, please tell us what you’ve been sniffing this week and I can live vicariously..
