Do You Like Music Festivals?

I like to think that because I have no sense of smell, my taste in music and fashion is on another level. LOL!

I love going to these things! There’s something about live music, dressing up, and dancing until I can’t feel my legs anymore that I oh so enjoy! I feel so comfortable at these events and I’ve learned that my anosmia is actually a perk and something that REALLY works to my advantage whenever I attend.

So this story is about how having no sense of smell helped me out when I went to a certain popular music festival in California a couple of years ago (you know, the one that rhymes with umbrella and mozzarella).

Anyways, if you’ve ever attended this music festival, you know it can be alot of fun and is amazing! There’s music, fashion, and super delicious snacks. But… it’s also massive and designed to spread out over many acres and is overcrowded…

I remember I had just finished watching Disclosure’s performance, when I felt that all too recognizable and annoying physical signal indicating I had to go potty #1 (TMI, I know). I ran in the direction of the nearest restrooms (which meant sprinting across the main stage grassy area, ducking groups of fashionable people and artwork displays for what seemed an eternity) and once I arrived, felt my heart sink a bit.  There was a super long line for the next “clean” porta potty and I needed to go really, and I mean really, bad. Anyways, I look around and noticed that there was an empty porta potty with the door open. I asked the girl in front of me  why no one’s chosen to use it and she was like, “Omg because whoever used it last, probably ate an expired burrito served with a side of rotten egg and washed it all down with a glass of spoiled milk. It freaking stinks!”

I look at her and my brain somehow processes that what she had just said was music to my ears LOL (no pun intended)! I bolted towards the porta potty and because I am the Girl Who Can’t Smell and can’t smell for nothing, went in smiling, knowing I would experience the sweet relief of relief without the wait. LOL

Moral of Story: Anosmia is indeed my superpower.

With Love,

The Girl Who Can’t Smell
