Really, I need you to sniff it for me. Why? Because, about two years ago, I completely lost my sense of smell. I have nasal polyps that are causing me all kinds of problems and this is one of the major by-products.
This has turned out to be a bit of a mixed blessing. On the one hand, I can’t smell all of the bad things in the world like farts, pollution, men’s cologne, babies, etc. On the other hand, I am also missing out on the great smells like Thanksgiving dinner, candles, my wife’s hair, flowers and on and on.
For most people, this would probably be a life altering ailment that permanently disabled them. Being ever the optimist, however, I am trying to figure out a way to utilize this new found skill. Turn this lemon into lemonade, if you will.
So I am taking suggestions on how I might best utilize this new super power that is so rare. I don’t want to do the obvious like sewer work or be a gynecologist. No, I want to do something unique, practical and, above all else, incredibly profitable.
Really, now that I think about it, anything remotely dealing with poop or the poop hole should be immediately eliminated. I just don’t see any upside there. I am open to other foul smells but they can’t be associated with things that are gross to look at.
For instance, inspecting infected hoo-hoos would not work because the visual would be even more horrific than the smell. (Hence my refusal to be a gynecologist). I suppose I could inspect healthy hoo-hoos but I am not sure there is much of a market there.
Anyway, I am stumped. Please help me find a new path and let me use this gift that God has granted me. (Oh, and a big shout out to Jesus for giving me the polyps in the first place…greatly appreciated).
Thanks for your help in this exciting, yet pitiful, search for greatness. TL
