Quote from me: ‘I can’t smell bugger all’
I went for a walk around the estate this afternoon to post a letter that said ‘you should be on the electoral register but if you don’t that’s ok we’ll just charge you £100 for being a naughty girl’! That cleared my head!
However, while I was walking I realised that sometimes I forget there is such a thing as smell, that the world doesn’t actually smell at all, and everybody’s nose is just a vessel to breath through.
I think the world doesn’t smell of anything because there is nothing to smell.
Food doesn’t smell of anything, cut grass doesn’t smell of anything flowers don’t smell of anything, and perfume, what’s the point in that if you can’t smell it?
It’s only when I look at these things that I realise they do smell, especially the things I’ve just described, as they are, or were nice smells. It’s just that I can’t smell them. Thing is I can’t smell horrible things either like sour milk or dare I say it sweat, or bad breath, but even that would be OK because it would be a smell!
I know that this sounds like I’m feeling sorry for myself, I suppose I am, but that’s how I feel at the moment. I need to let it out, to explain it even of its just to myself and maybe people who would be interested in reading this?
