No, seriously, I am an olfactory freak. I can smell people. I'm not talking about body order (although I can certainly smell that, too, much to my dismay), or cologne or deodorant. And the really freaky thing is, I can smell them from about 20 paces, farther if the wind is right.
I read somewhere that in the grand scheme of odoriferous-ness, humans are a smelly species, and that's part of the reason that other animals tend to avoid us.
I'll buy that theory. I would much prefer to smell horses, or even dogs.
I'm guessing that this new "skill" is the result of the repeated purging of epithelial cells. The fresh ones in my nose are just extra clean and sensitive right now. I'm kinda hoping it's something that will fade over time.
If not, I could probably pursue a career in manhunts...
