To smell or not to smell, that is the question. I vote yes. By now, if you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I have been sick pretty much the entire month of December. Well, all that's left of this hellacious sinus/ear infection and flu, is a nagging cough. Not to be confused with the whooping-i think I'm choking- cough that I had as well. Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, smell. It seems I lost it, my sense of smell, a few weeks ago. I mean, really lost it. Like, you could put me in a room that wreaks of sewer or worse, and I wouldn't even bat an eye. At first, I thought it was my imagination. But I soon learned that was not the case. I was so freaked out I called my doctor. "What's wrong with me? I can't smell! Do I need to come in?" -hypochondriac much? My doctor reassured me that what I was experiencing was normal due to how sick I had been and that as soon as my infections were all cleared up, my sense of smell would return. I thought this was only going to be a few days at most. Wrong. Try three and half weeks! Ugh! I know there are greater problems with this world of ours other than my whiny situation. But have YOU ever lost your sense of smell? It's pretty freaky. Think, spraying perfume and not being able to tell if you sprayed too much or too little. Or think walking into a bakery, and inhaling, expecting the aromas of delicious sin to fill your nose, only to be devastated because you smell nothing. Or worse yet, being given flowers from a friend, to try and cheer you up, and not being able to take in their fragrance. It's awful!!! Well, imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to the smell of brewing coffee! That's right guys! I can smell again! I was so happy, that I went around the house just sniffing up a storm. Ok, so I may have looked a bit odd doing so, but I didn't care! Today was a great day peeps! A GREAT day!
So what bodes for you this weekend? Do tell!
My weekend will consist of continuing to get better, resting and oh yeah, cheering some football team on Saturday as they play in their first EVER play-off game.
GO TEXANS!!!! :)
