31 Days of Random Questions – Day 28

I really thought I had today’s post all written and scheduled to post at 6:00 a.m… It has been a busy weekend with meeting my nephew for the first time, partying at a wedding (where I saw no bouquet throwing!), taking a four-hour road trip, and catching up with two different friends. I have had a marvelous time! Bonus question: How was your weekend?

Actual question I intended for Day 28: What is one smell that brings back a childhood memory?

The smell of coconut reminds me of sunscreen and summer and swimming at the lake or pool. As far as I remember, all sunscreen smelled like coconut in the 80’s and early 90’s. To this day, that olfactory trigger is why I avoid coconut-flavored drinks. They taste the way sunscreen smelled.

  1. Happily I grew up on a horse farm and showed livestock during the better majority of my childhood in Michigan. The only smells that remind me of my childhood are at the fair when I go into the “Livestock area.” Sadly I think it is the manure smell that sparks the memories…. šŸ˜¦

    Bonus:
    Weekend was a bit unproductive; slept in an extra 3-4 hours Saturday and was groggy all day, lounged around and didn’t get much of anything done. šŸ˜¦ Didn’t even get any reading done….

    • My dad grew up on a farm too and still refers to the scent of livestock/manure as “the smell of money.”

      I think we all need a relaxing, unproductive weekend now and then!
