Until recently my sense of taste and smell has been hit or miss. Enter Flonase, a prescription steroid that is misted in the nostrils. Yes, miracles can happen.

I can smell the world and taste the things I have been missing.

But I notice recently that phantom smells have been sneaking in. For example: I sometimes get the distinct smell of another man. Okay maybe she is, but I get the smell of cigarettes too. Perhaps he smokes?

The old gal is on watch.
