Yesterday I told my friends that when I get old and start to smell I expect them to tell me. Unfortunately, they will also be old and smelly.
When someone starts to lose their sense of smell, why do they think, “Gee, I don’t have to bathe today, because I smell just fine! Why did I used to bathe every day? I can get by with once a week! And now I must put on my pretty clothes and go to the church tea.” Right, and no one will notice the smell.
I am not talking about someone who is poor, disabled, unsophisitcated, or even elderly.
