Ok, I have this thing that I do that I never thought was weird until a few years ago. I smell weird stuff, and like it. I like gasoline (Randy does the fueling up when I'm pregnant), the smell of the seam of a new magazine makes me happy (the bigger the magazine, the better), stuff like that. Well a few years ago we had done an enrichment night activity where we made ceramic nativity sets. The girl that put the finish on them brought me one on Sunday freshly done and the smell of the glaze made me very happy. It wasn't dry yet, so I had to hold this camel ceramic piece with a pencil. So, I'm walking around, waiting for RS to start, with a pencil up a camel's butt, sniffing it with a grin on my face..... I was sniffing a camel's butt and enjoying it!!! I didn't think it was weird until my friend, Dave (he calls me "Crazy Hope", and I take it as a compliment) came by and was all sorts of mad, he said I was huffing and when he was a cop in Colorado, he would have arrested me. My response to him, "well, don't you wish you were still a cop in Colorado? sniff, sniff"!!!! Ok, huffing is meant to get high, I just smell stuff and grin, I have no lasting affects, no cravings, no blacking out, nothing like that, I think it's pretty innocent. Then Dave schooled me on my brain, how it's "different" than most (we all knew that), most people that like dumb smells also eat weird food combinations, I don't do that. Now that I start thinking about it... I DID have a son born with a birth defect.....hmmmm, just kidding, it had nothing to do with this. My new favorite smell of choice, Randy's deodorant. Speed Stick Active Scent, YUMMY!!! When he goes to sleep, he'll put his left arm up and secretly I bury my head as close as I can and sniff away!!! Weird, not to me. I bet everyone does dumb things that no one knows about. I'm here to help everyone feel better about themselves!!! You're welcome!!!
