The scene on my desk used to be a pack of smokes and an ashtray.
So, I may have lost real estate in this non-smoker recession, but I have gained a lot more.
I can breathe, I can taste and smell things again. Granted, this is not always a good thing. For instance, I can smell if there is a dirty ashtray somewhere in the house. Also, were you aware that vegetables actually have their own taste? I kid you not....vegetables DO NOT taste like salt and butter.
I know, I was as shocked as you are and I am down 34 pounds.
