A few of my favourite smells
There is a smell to boiling greens, faintly reminiscent of a rainy earth.
And good fresh cooked drumsticks hot from the stove...
The smell of cotton fabric fiercely sun-dried
Furious raindrops on a dry earth
Lawn grass being watered
Seasoning sizzzzzling into rasam
Buttered Corn popping in a machine
Sharp fresh betel leaf with its stem broken off...
Hot mango pickle...
Petrol filling in a tank
Wood shavings fresh off a block
The smell of hot rice, 'paruppu' and ghee... slurp!
These are a few of my favourite smells... Huh, strange how most of them are to do with food eh?! Wonder how that happened! :P
Tell me, what tickles your nose...or your tongue!
