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.
#139: You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp — but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?
I don’t think I would to be honest. For one, I don’t know who this person is – for all I know it could be poison that would eventually kill me. Secondly, I think if I chose one, I’d end up missing the rest after a while. So, I’d rather stick to the levels of senses I was given.
