I always say I have a pregnancy nose without the pregnancy. I hate 95% of all smells. One of many sensory issues.

But I do love so many smells! Like the first "whiffs" of fall in the mornings , the first puff of diesel smoke out of a well worn John Deere 4020 tractor, the smoky oily caustic blast of AV gas and smoke that belches out of my big radial Prat n Whitney R-985 engines when they wake up n sputter on a September morning, the smell of whatever that stuff Julie washes her hair with and the smell of babies, but not all babies ,and not all of the time.

I tend to like detergent, body wash, and shampoo smells. As in, zero is afraid to go down those aisles when we're shopping because I will open everything and sniff at them like an addict.

Oh, hey. I came here to write a long, dramatic, bullshit Bob post, but this works just as well.

Guilty Pleasure: I have an enormous crush on this woman I met, but instead of risking rejection by asking her out, I'm riding the dopamine high as long as it lasts and using the drive to impress her to make cool s*** and clean out some of my emotional baggage for my own benefit.

The song "Beth" by KISS. Holy f***. "Beth, what can I do?" You can sack up and tell your buddies you're done for the night. You can act like the needs of your wife are, like, up there with your need to have fun with your buddies. You are an a****** and being an a****** to a pretty tune in a slow song doesn't make you less an a******.

No idea why I'm having such strong opinions about this at six thirty in the morning, but here we are.
There's another home somewhere,
There's another glimpse of sky...
There's another way to lean
into the wind, unafraid.
There's another life out there...

Kinda the same thing ! I can be such a dope

Guilty Pleasure: Two of them currently - Marriage Boot Camp:Reality Stars (although since they've changed hosts my wife and I aren't as interested in watching) and Charli XCX.

Irrational Irritation: Leaving the toaster plugged in (we have four cats and who knows...) and turning plurals into possessive's...

I just skipped through to watch all of the best parts of North and South. Seriously my greatest guilty pleasure...
