Sniffin’ It Out

Most of the time these days we are on sensory overload.  The sights, sounds, new tastes (however made up the flavors sound) and smells can overwhelm our senses.  Consider one of them for a moment: the sense of smell.  Smells can be a powerful leader sense that can tell a cautionary tale, stir up other senses (smell a lemon and your mouth will water), or transport us to another time and place (the smell of paste).  Below is a list of items (feel free to add to the list in a comment) that could have powerful memories, or create some other sensory response.  What do you think?

  1. Box of Crayons
  2. Pencils
  3. Markers
  4. Books
  5. Fraternity house
  6. Tequila
  7. Roses (what color do you picture when you think of the aroma?)
  8. A church building
  9. A school
  10. A locker room
  11. Grandmother
  12. Grandfather
  13. A bathroom
  14. A puppy
  15. A baby

Look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Fresh cut grass reminds me of spring (and a job well done when I used to cut grass as a teen). Funny, I forgot all about “paste” but just the thought of that brought back a ton of memories. My, how time flies. : )
