    Ummm Patty.. Have you been nipping at the wine? Some of those answers are kinda odd.

    Eh wot?

    (checks list)

    Oh. I see what you mean. Right.

    For #10, "your own flatulence," strike that and insert "your mother's flatulence."

    I love the smell of old books, those that have been sitting in the attic for years on end.

    And good old fashioned book-burnings.

    From the time I was a wee lad I'd take a deep sniff whenever I passed a "dead skunk in the middle of the road" (there's actually a song titled that) and then I found out that I wasn't the only one. I think that there is a place online where you can buy a vial of scent to tote around with you when you need a fix. And I must add that my new word of the day is "fromage". As in famunda fromage sandwiches.

    New car smell is okay for a quick whiff, but then gives me a headache. Always liked the smell of markers and roasting garlic (yummy!!!!!).
