It's day 17 and the craziest thing happened. My wife made coffee for me and I could SMELL IT from UPSTAIRS!! As in a DIFFERENT ROOM on a DIFFERENT FLOOR! I've never had a very strong sense of smell, so for me to be able to do this blew me away! However this new found superpower isn't what all it's cracked up to be - with great power comes great responsibility. I didn't realize at the time, but my power was activated before my coffee awakening. Little insight on me - I think poots are one of the funniest things ever. Everything from the look on people's faces when they encounter or create one to the immense range of sounds they can take on (Long, short, high pitched, low pitched, I could go on you know...) Immature I know, but I can't help it. I've always been the one that laughs the hardest at a whoopie cushion or laugh until I cry when I see the horrified look on my family's face when I hit the power locks on the windows in our car going down the road. And in true hypocrite fashion, I am appalled when our oldest son fires one in my direction (our youngest son still has the cute toots that aren't strong enough to cause any damage). See I can't do anything poop related - can't even look at it. Nope - not even a little bit. Litter box? Not a chance. Baby diaper - yea, right... I don't even think my wife and I can have another kid because I honestly don't know how I made it through our last one. One whiff sends me into a gagging session that would gross my family out if they weren't too busy laughing at my Karma biting me. So the other day, In line at a local flea market, my wife turns to me and whispers in an accusatory tone so low I thought she just mouthed the words, "Did you fart?!". "No" and she knew I was telling the truth because I had a straight face. Granted, I always answer "no", but when I'm lying I can't help but giggle or try to subdue a grin. In the midst of wondering why she would ask me, BOOM! It hit me in the face like a ton of bricks! We were a good 4 feet away from the nearest person so I could not fathom the power this thing held that it could travel the distance and retain the potency it did. For a split second I tried to find the culprit, but then decided I didn't care and RAN! I yelled back to my wife, "I love you, I'll be out here!" I only took another breath when I was safe. Ol' iron lung wifey came out, rolled her eyes, and asked for my wallet before going back into the danger zone pretending it wasn't a big deal. Psh! So when I smelled the long-distance coffee I realized what happened that day. I was just able to smell it like a normal person! Light-bulb!! So while I look forward to seeing how nice fresh cut grass smells and so many more scents that await me, there are a few I could do without. But take the good with the bad and appreciate it all. Even though it was an awful experience for me, my wife thoroughly enjoyed the reaction and got a good giggle out of it and I don't mind being the butt (no pun intended) of a joke to see her gorgeous smile!
Thank you guys for all the comments yesterday. I can't express the feeling. I hope I can return the favor one day!!
Much love and good vibes to you ALL!!
