Because of my sensitive sense of smell, I have to keep my cooling system cleaned and in as pristine of shape as humanly possible
While my eyepight continually worsens with age, I am incredibly surprised to witness my sense of smell getting stronger. I remember going crazy when my mother would cart us from hotel room to hotel room during trips across the country because she said a single or more of them smelled care about mold. As a child, they all smelled the exact same to me and I just had to take her word for it, regardless of how miserable it made us all. All of us would balk and squirm, typically frustrated at the thought of picking up our suitcases and walking to a odd room yet again after having done so more than two times prior. But nowadays I completely understand in area why my mother lost her mind a lot over odors over the years. When your olfactory sense gets attuned with the surrounding environment, you can’t simply “turn it off” care about you would with a button or switch. Now you’re smelling odors that you would normally ignore or fail to notice altogether, which could be liberating in some ways. For instance, I can often detect by odor alone whether or not my food is done cooking inside the oven. This is especially noticeable when I bake fresh cookies or pizza, but I’m noticing it with other foods as well. Because of my sensitive sense of smell, I have to keep my cooling system cleaned and in as pristine of shape as humanly possible. If I don’t keep the cooling system cleaned, I notice a musty odor whenever it turns on and starts to cycle.
