Anosmia

There was a story about Anosmia that came across MetaFilter earlier this week that caught my eye. What is Anosmia? It’s the lack of ability to smell. The story immediately took me back to a story of my own…

I used to have a friend who couldn’t smell. I thought that was the weirdest thing. I didn’t know it was possible to not smell, but I guess it makes sense since some people don’t have other senses like hearing and sight. For some reason, I never believed her, so I decided to put it to the test one night. I was hanging out at her house and she left to run to the store for a few minutes. While she was gone, I sparked up a joint and smoked it a bit right before she came back to see if she smelled the pot when she came home. She was a fellow “head”, so I knew if she smelled it, she’d be all over getting some herself, but when she walked in – she didn’t notice a thing and went about her business as usual. Imagine my surprise! Of course I then had to come clean and share some of the doobage with her. Heh.

Ahhhh, good times, good times. That was a lifetime ago.
