Exaggerated Senses

Aside from my super human wetsuit busting powers I seem to have some improvements in my senses.

Smell - The smell of fast food has always been a bit revolting to me and has been even worse for the past couple of months. The mere mention of KFC made my stomach turn. I have also acquired an aversion for the smell of chicken and haven't eaten any lately.

Taste - Again, no chicken. I was also turned off by PB&J for a while but I'm back on board with that. But the taste of fruit is great right now. I can't seem to get enough of it, especially juicy and / or citrus fruits. Smoothies are good too, that's the one thing I would say I've craved at times. Of course, I don't know if it's considered a craving if you would eat it normally.

Hearing - Michael is currently downstairs singing about being on a boat. For those of you who don't have a clue what I'm talking about you can probably find the video on u-tube. Let's just say this song has been stuck in Michael's head for weeks and it's driving me insane. So as he's down stairs singing it I just blurted out, "I can hear you," in an effort to quiet him down. He answered back, "How did you hear that? I was singing under my breath."

Sight - Unfortunately this has not improved. Although I can't say I'd notice an improvement if there was one. After all, my vision is so dismal that it would take a lot before it was anything less than horrible. Thankfully I've continued to eat carrots my entire life.

Feel - I've taught myself to read Braille over the past few weeks. I feel this will be a useful skill assuming the improved vision never pans out. (That's a joke although I would like to learn to read Braille someday).
