What I want for Christmas

What I really want for Christmas is my sense of smell back.

And to celebrate that, I want a set of those markers that we had as kids - you know, the ones that smell like the color. The orange one smelled like orange and the blue one smelled like blueberry.

I distinctly remember the day in kindergarten when we had been deemed responsible enough to color with markers. And one of my tablemates turned to me ... with a giant blue marker spot on the tip of her nose.

But mostly, what I want for Christmas is not to feel like death on a stick. Perhaps magic markers would help with that.

I'll buy you smelly markers if you buy me a mimeograph machine. Mmmm, purple ink.

The black licorice was my favorite. Memories.
