I Can’t Smell the Coffee (or Anything)

Someone holds something out to you, in the general direction of your face. Sometimes, they don’t say anything. A silent offering. But usually, generally speaking, they say something like, “Smell it.”

And I almost always smile awkwardly, give a little shrug, and say, “I don’t have a sense of smell.”
