This Nose Knows!
She was baking. Not an unsual occurance. The usual smell of cake batter filled the air. I don’t particularly like its smell but it doesn’t really bother me either. I settled down in the hay for a little nap, just dozing really. Then I heard something. It was enough to catch my attention but I couldn’t work out what it might be. Raising my nose, I inhaled deeply. The mouth watering aroma of bananas filled my nasal cavities.
What?! How dare she use something I like without offering me any. I squeaked and bar chewed indignantly but got no reply. In fact she may have just turned the radio up.
I was furious and squeaked to alert the others to what she was doing. They joined me in squeaky demands. “For heaven sake! Here!” Mummy said, storming and thrusting chunks of banana at us. I wolfed mine down. Later she ate a banana muffin in front of me. I could still smell the banana but not eat it in a cakey mixture. It was very upsetting. I think she did it as punishment for my; bar-chewing, rebellion-leading, loud-squeaking naughtiness.
It doesn’t change the fact though. My nose knew! It is a genius!
What are your favourite smells? Are there any smells you don’t like? And do you think there is anything in the world that can smell at banana at that distance?! 😉
