Bionic Nose or Super Power?

We're wrappin' up our visit at Barnes. Hit the antique store earlier but the smells were irritating my bionic nose. Then I started to breathe through my mouth only by time we got in the car, I was tasting EVERYTHING. Though that wasn't as bad as later at the craft store where my bionic nose picked up the smells too horrible to mention.

Of all the super powers to have, a bionic nose is not on my Top Pick List.

Tim just read this and said it sounds like I picked my nose, bionically. He even made the sound effects. I love him. He cracks me up.

He's one funny Frankenberry.

  1. I suspect every superpower is both a blessing and a curse.

    1. You crack me up, all the time. Great comment, and so true.

  2. I share your super power, except that mine translates into trouble for my very powerful gag reflex. I start gagging at even the smell of dirty feet....

    1. Oh boy, that's far worse. I hold my breath and run. Okay, I don't run but I do walk quite fast.

  3. Oh, I am with Maria on this one. I gag so easily. (Much to my husband's chagrin.) It is weird because in my line of work it is not a good thing to have a strong gag reflex. Thank god for masks that hide the gagging.

    1. Hahahaha, I love when you come visit my blog. You're so funny.

      But yes, masks are good.

  4. It's funny because there are times when my hearing is so on point that I can tell if someone has left a TV on, even if the screen is blank. Yet, I've got some hearing loss...go figure. My nose is a lot like that too though, I can smell things that my husband normally cannot!

    1. I understand that in a funny way. I can hear some things so well, but I can't always understand the direction of the noise. I sometimes think it's from the opposite side that it's really coming from.

  5. I am sensitive to smell myself.

    1. Do you have something more sensitive than other things?

  7. Lucky you. I lost my sense of smell 20 years ago.

  8. My nose isn't that powerful. I often get too used to smells and I don't notice them

  9. In my case, my sense of smell is rather undeveloped. The hearing, however... well, I can hear below and above the normal range of human hearing.

  12. Better than no sense of smell, especially when you're a cook. And you gotta love a man with a sense of humour!

    1. Great tool for selecting produce and knowing when meat is bad, too.
