Did you ever smell something and were instantly transported back to a place in time that was a part of your past that made you just smile? Take today for instance ok take every day for instance I use this apple scented body lotion and I swear that when I use it I'm instantly transported back to the time that I was 6 years old and sitting on my grandfathers lap and he's carving an apple and whispers into my ear.."want a slice?" I'd always giggle because he'd slip a slice into my mouth and then finish cutting the apples for a pie that gram was inevitably making for dinner or a family get together.
Another smell that made me smile today was the smell of the mulch today........for some reason it reminded me of the smell of a rootbeer float. and that reminded me of my other grandfather and the time that he'd take me to the bar and we'd sit and have a drink together and he'd ask me how my day was. I can remember that like it was yesterday so every shovel full of mulch made me think of him and just grin from ear to ear.
Some smells make me shake with fear and other make me grin so much without giggling. Is it bad that so many of my memories are food related? honestly that bothers me to no end I wish that wasn't the case. I wish my memories were more fitness related and less food related. but alas the reality of the situation is they aren't
