I’ve been both cursed and blessed with an astute sense of smell. Nothing gets past my nose. God bless the inventor of deodorant!
Pro: I can warn others in the car on a hot summer day that a skunk is up ahead. (Roll up your windows everyone!)
Con: I have to smell that skunk stink in the first place.
Pro: I appreciate the musky scent of a quality cologne on a man, or the delicately sweet perfume on a woman.
Con: My head explodes if I try to walk by the perfume counter at a department store.
Pro: I know precisely what my mom has cooked before I even knock on the door.
Con: I know when my mom has boiled cabbage, so I don’t even knock on the door.
