As I've gotten older every time I get a cold I loose my sense of smell.
Which then makes me loose my sense of taste.
Which is sometimes great- Goodbye, cravings. Hello, Salads for every meal.
And sometimes stinks- Linc is poopy? I didn't even know. (or is that a good thing?)
Anyway, I was drinking a Gatoraid yesterday & I realized I couldn't taste it as much as "feel" it. Like it kind of tingled in my mouth (& I SO don't want to know which chemical caused that feeling- that's creepy!) But it got me thinking... could I tell what I was drinking, even if I couldn't taste it?
I wouldn't be a member of the Carter Family if I didn't put it to a test. Here were the drinks:
(again, that slightly unpleasant tingling I never noticed before) & the Pina Colada SOBE. All the others were a complete shot in the dark, but I say 4 outta 7 is better than half & I'll take that.
Does this happen to anyone else?
I'm a freak of nature, right?
