I like to smell.

I am seriously wondering why it is that I like to smell things so much. It’s like an obsession. I must smell. It has gotten me in LOTS of trouble with my nose, almost bringing me to a reunion with my previous meal. I smell all sorts of things. Dirty clothes to make sure they are dirty (YUCK!!!). Dishes after I have cleaned them, just to make sure they smell fresh! Today while at a THRIFT STORE (!!!) I was looking at some of the kitchen things and came across a sort of cute pitcher type thing and looked inside to see something crusted in there. What made me think it was a good idea to smell this crust, I do not know. But I stuck my sniffer in there with such passion, only to find it smelled of urine and who knows what else! I had to pull my face away so quickly! I was so mad at myself, whining about why I must smell everything. I got Justin curious as to what this pitcher smelled like, so even though I told him it was AWFUL, he also went in for a smell. He found out that I was indeed right about it stinking! haha! I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes to smell weird things. I actually think I live a fuller life knowing all the smells around me. Okay, maybe not ALL the smells. I could do without the smell of poop for the rest of my life. And also vomit. I could definitely live without those two smells and would NEVER EVER THINK of purposely smelling either of those things for as long as I live!

    Oh my gosh!! I seriously was in the middle of hysterical laughter but the kids kept interrupting the moment and the story. I was frustrated that it took me THREE different stop and go points to finish this story! Cause it was a good one!
    I hear ya on the smelling thing! That is my issue as well.
