Smellernet




We are putting on a big holiday festival at the Camden Children's Garden where I work and these guys have been leaning against the fence for a while now, waiting to be set up and decorated. Every time I walk by them I stop, glance around to make sure no one's watching, then lean my whole body into them (nose first) and inhale. I just can't seem to get enough.



I used to do that growing up with the wreath my mom put on the front door at home. That was even better because it was squished between the wooden door where it was hung and the glass door, so the smell was caught between them and when I opened the glass door I released the intensified smell. I would just stand there pressing my face to the prickles for a few moments before I opened the wooden door and went inside.

I wish someone would invent the Smellernet so I could pass on the joy to you.
