But, I will add--what do sneezes actually smell like? Roses? The rain?
I'm thankful for fun blogsReplyDelete
and for the Greeks
on another note, my friend says that sneezes are 1/8th of an orgasm, but I'm not sure I believe her.
I still like sneezing though.
Nocturne: My old supervisor (male) would always tell me that sneezing was better than s-e-x. ALWAYS say that, all the dang time. :)ReplyDelete
PS, I'm thankful for the blessing of hindsight, and that I have made it through these last 2 years since Thanksgiving 2004. Time really does give you a better perspective on things--especially eternal type things.ReplyDelete
Sneezes smell like sneezes--what else can I say?
I've never thought to compare them to sex however....
