Thursday Thirteen # 1

Thirteen Things about Bad Jokes & Oven Chips

13 smells - not sure what insight this will give you other than that I have smelt all of these things......

1. Fresh pears - it's a clean smell. I like that. I also just so happen to be eating a pear as I write this.

2. Farts - NOT a clean smell. I'm not so keen on this one.

3. New cars - I don't like this smell but my boyfriend does. This came up in conversation the other day when I spotted a 'new car smell' air freshener tree at the petrol station.

4. Cut grass - Don't get to smell this first hand as often as I should. Bad lawncutter! Good veg grower.

5. Wine - This smell I like unless I've been drinking too much of it the night before.. in which case it's a smell I really hate!

6. Hot Chocolate - YUM!

7. Coffee - I think I like the smell better than the taste... not that the taste isn't lovely too.

8. Biscuits - Now I'm just thinking about food that goes with coffee! Freshly baked biscuits smell is pretty special, though.

9. Feet - OK, I realise feet themselves don't necessarily smell, but I live with a chap who works outdoors on his feet all day.... It's hard to keep them sweet!

10. Newly washed sheets - Never get a better night's sleep than the day I change the bedding.... Perhaps I should do that more often too.

11. Fermenting yeast - It's the smell of Glasgow! May also contribute to the alcoholic tendencies of the Scots(?)

12. Mortons Rolls - I smell these fresh baked rolls on my way home from Brownies every Tuesday... and get home itching for bread.

13. Brass - Not an everyday smell for most people but it's a side effect of trumpet playing (particularly Natural Trumpet) that your hands stink of brass.
