Sitting on the train, surrounded by soggy people I noticed something which got me thinking. Now, this is either the type of paper used in Ireland, or perhaps unknown components in the Irish rain, but damp newspapers smell like vomit!
While we are on this interesting topic I think just cooked popcorn smells like vomit too. But it’s strange how your sense of smell is linked to your taste yet in the case of popcorn it smells very different to how it tastes?? Does this mean we cannot trust these people that sniff wine, or what about people that enjoy the smell of their own gases – could this mean that this gas sniffer unknowingly makes all dishes with similar smells to the one they like, suddenly “Toad in the Hole” and especially “Bubble & Squeak” leave me thinking.
Now, do you have any taste, smell stories?
