Sight: It’s dark outside at the moment, so all I can see is my screen (of course) and my room, but it’s been glorious weather this week.
Hearing: After watching who made it to the top three on this seasons Drag Race (SPOILER ALERT: my two favourites Naomi Smalls and Kim Chi made it woo), I’ve decided to continue the fabulousness and am now listening (and lip-syncing) to RuPaul’s new album The Rusical… available on iTunes!
Taste: Umm… There isn’t a prominent taste taking over my palette right now but if I had to say something, it’d be toothpaste from brushing my teeth a few hours ago.
Smell: Chocolate. There’s some chocolate biscuits that are casually lingering on my desk, frequently catching my eye. Only one way to get rid of them… *nom nom*
The usual things people are afraid of… Getting hit by a car, living life alone, spiders, losing one of my senses, having to pull all of the hair out the bath plug so the water can drain again, not picking the right flatmate to live with next…
It’s a funny thing, fear. As author H. P. Lovecraft so rightly said “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” In a nutshell, that’s what the future is… unknown. And that’s how it’ll always stay, no matter how hard people try to predict what’s in store for us… you’ve just got to roll with it.
#259: If you were forced to give up one sense, but gain super-sensitivity in another, which senses would you choose?
I don’t think I could justify which one to give up… I’ve managed to come up with well-reasoned arguments in my head for all five senses and am unable to make a decision on which I would choose, as I wouldn’t want want to lose any of them. Of course if, as I get older, I do lose one of my sense it will obviously be upsetting but that’s life… plus it wouldn’t have been my decision, so it’s different.
