For most of my life, I’ve had a relatively stunted sense of smell. I can get very strong odors, some very pungent ones, and a few random smells, but for the most part, I didn’t smell stuff. It just didn’t happen.
I recently (last year) started going to a new doctor, and she prescribed an over-the-counter supplement – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quercetin – for my asthma/allergies, hoping to eliminate Singulair.
And I can smell!
I mean, things I’ve never smelled at all before suddenly have nosefeels. It’s very strange – although it makes for some odd conversations.
“Do mushrooms always smell like this?”
“Does Spinach always smell like this? It smells like bad fresh-cut grass!”
and so on.
Appears yes, spinach always does smell like that. And, go figure, shit actually does stink.
