According to folks who know me in person, I've got a pretty keen sense of smell. So you'd think I'd be most likely to avoid smells I dislike... but I don't... always. Like, if I catch a whiff of something stinky, I'll often go back and smell it again. And maybe again. I mean, I do have a slight masochistic streak in me, but somehow, I don't think that really explains this. Recent example? Some soup and rice (and meat) that went bad. In a bowl, on the kitchen counter. It smelled awful. Yet I purposefully lifted the cover off to give it a proper sniff. And was thoroughly disgusted. Does anyone else do this? Do you? Do you ever purposefully smell things that smell bad?
