Stark Raven Mad
Are you actually completely anosmic?
I think so, although sometimes I get sudden headaches, and when I look around, there’s someone smoking a cigarette. Does that count?
Have you sought medical help for this? No, I don’t seek medical help even when I need it, and I don’t really consider my broken smeller a problem.
Do you leave the room when someone farts? No, to me farts are just funny sounds that make other people complain a lot.
Do you find yourself worrying about gas leaks in your house? Yes, but there are always family members around that could tell me if they smelled anything.
Does it make it easier to work with the dung? Well, probably, but dung sculpting really isn’t as hard as it looks. I could probably teach it to you in no time.
cowgirl, I don’t have any allergies that I know of.
No smelling-nose dog, just two smell-producing cats.
How is your sense of taste? Do you feel you can sense some odors by taste? Not at all. Actually, I’m usually glad I can’t smell. It seems to me that it would be like if someone came up and shoved something in your mouth, and you’d have to taste it whether you wanted to or not. Ugh!
Do you get any sensation from deeply penetrating or intense odors, like Essence of Skunk, or Hydrogen Sulfide? I get rapid headaches from fumes like nail polish remover, but it’s got to be really strong. For instance, I don’t notice any sensations from the gasoline when I’m filling up my car. I guess I’d have to put my nose close to a puddle of it.
I’ll pass on the rendering plant. However, I would like to work in a funeral home or something along those lines, and I have to wonder if not being able to smell would be a drawback then. I might send someone’s Aunt Lucy out for the viewing looking pretty as a picture, but stinking like…well, something really bad.
