Most people are born with five senses--sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. I have a sixth sense; I get flashes where I...see the future, for lack of a better way to put it. Anyways, this week we were asked, if we had to lose on of the five normal senses, which would it be? Well, I wouldn't want to be blind, because there are some many beautiful things in this world, and I love drawing. You need to see to draw. I wouldn't want to be deaf, because I am addicted to music. Can't give that up. I don't think I would want to give up taste. I can't imagine not being able to taste brownies, or pizza, or steak.
    For me, it boils down to smell or touch. I love to smell candles, but no sense of smell would really come in handy when using the public restroom. It would be easier to give up because I'm crazy over music, but not so much as the smell of cookies. On the other hand, if I lost my sense of touch, I wouldn't be able to feel any pain, which could be good or bad. I cook about three times a week, and I've burned myself on the pan several times. It would be nice if I couldn't feel that, but if I couldn't feel that, I wouldn't move my finger, then I would permanently damage it! Yep, if I had to choose, I would want to lose my sense of smell. It would be hard, though. It would be hard losing any sense...I hope I never do.

I agree that smell and touch are definitely not the most important senses. I would give up my smell or touch but not my hearing or seeing. Those would be too hard for me to give up!
