Yech, I'm recovering from a summer cold, extended for a week by the presence of BC forest ashes in the lungs last week. I had pot-smoke-eyes for three days. I went around with my upper lip coated in lavender-scented body butter to mitigate the smoky smell.
Smoke is, to me, the worst smell out there. As a small child I drove my Colt Cigarillo-smoking dad right outdoors with my tirades. I also occasionally suffer from olfactory hallucinations related to mild migraine - and they are always smoke scented. I am the silent Edmontonian who was relieved when the indoor smoking bylaws were passed.
Don't worry, I'm not an anti-smoking nutjob who shouts at people inside the 5m radius...though that is the result of good restraint. I keep my many arguments & opinions inside my skull.
