I made this up. I was thinking the other day of things I love to smell and taste and touch--insomnia, it'll make you do weird things--and I thought I might put it into a post. And then I thought it would be fun to hear what other people love to touch and taste and see. So I made it into a tag. I hope you'll play along (even if I didn't tag you), cause I'd love to read yours. Here are the rules:
5 Senses Tag
List 4 things you love, and one thing you hate, for each category. Then tag 5 people;
leave them a note on their blog so they know. Also, let the person who tagged you know when you post yours.
2. brown sugar and vanilla
3. greenery after it rains
4. warm, sweet nuts, like those kind you smell at the fair
5. Hate: Beer brewing. I had to walk past a beer brewery on my way to school each day when I lived in Germany, and it made me dry heave every time. I never got used to it.
1. crisp. smooth cotton sheets
2. the soft skin on my husband’s neck, just under his ear (it’s my favorite spot to kiss)
3. fur, on naked skin. If you’ve ever held a cat or a bunny when you’re naked, the fur feels so much softer against your other skin than your hands. Come on, don’t tell me I’m the only one holding bunnies while naked??
4. Sticking my hand, arm deep, into a big bag of wheat or birdseed or other small, round objects. It feels so cool and soothing.
5. Hate: chalk. Touching chalk gives me the heebie jeebies
1. Crickets, and frogs if you’re lucky enough to hear them, at night in the summer time. It is just a quintessential summer sound that is so soothing and happy to me.
2. Beck’s laugh—he has the most hearty, deep gut laugh. It’s so infectious!
3. distant church bells. One thing I loved about traveling in Europe is how you might hear church bells chime or carillons play off in the distance at any time.
4. The crinkly sound a down comforter makes when you sit on it or pull it up to your chin.
5. Hate: Beck screeching when Daphne takes things away from him
2. dark chocolate and raspberry together
4. fresh pineapple
5. Hate: blue cheeses. Sorry, I’m not into eating MOLD.
1. Green trees, as far as the eye can see
2. Turquoise, clear water—like the kind in the Caribbean
3. A clean kitchen
4. Glass. All kinds of glass—stained glass, glass bottles, glass pebbles, chandeliers... Something about the way light shines through glass is so beautiful to me.
5. Hate: Wounds. If I see wounds on people or animals, I get these weird sympathy pains, and I go weak for a minute. I could never be a nurse or a doctor.
