The air smelled like gasoline, diesel exhaust and the cloyingly sweet and overbearing smell of clover blooming in the lawn... it almost makes me choke, so I take a drag from my cigarette to cancel out the sweetness. I shut my eyes and lean against the wall, enjoying the smoke and the sweet cold of my frozen coke in contrast to the humid windless heat of the day. The ice truck driver walks by with a dolly loaded with ice and I can feel the ghost of the cool brush across me for a few seconds... cool and moist like a cave, but it disappears just as quickly, making the heat seem even more intense. I can feel my hair starting to stick to my face and push it back as I finish my cigarette, take my last sip of my drink and then head back to my bicycle.

    see... not hard!
    What was the price of a gallon of gas?

    I can tell you the price of the slushy... I rode in and out on the wrong side of the gas station to see the sign and was nowhere NEAR the pumps

    I think I would be pretty bad at this. I notice stuff I guess like the smell of a BBQ or whatever but I generally don't care. To try and describe it, I would say... it smells like a BBQ. Or the grass felt like grass.

    But, a smell can trigger me to go off into my own little world for who knows how long. If I catch a whiff of a honeysuckle flower I can go all nostalgic for hours.

    I'm a bad driver and am on a forced holiday from driving, so I haven't looked at gas prices for a while

    it's just not practical to look at them when you never have to pay for gas!

    I don't think I've ever had issues when it comes to Se as it pertains to the more sensory/pleasurable things out of life.

    I love good food, I love the feel of showers and baths and clean sheets, I notice a lot of stuff when I'm out hiking in nature... (although, the scope/extent of what I pick up has been added to as each year goes by), I could probably come up with all kinds of other things... I feel pretty detached from certain elements of how this world functions, certainly, but not so detached when it comes to sensory stuff!
