Hello, lovelies! It's ten o'clock in the evening, it's the first day of August, and it's blogging time. Yes, despite Maureen Johnson's inability to follow through with her old plan of updating her blog every day this month, I'm keeping the spirit of BEDA alive. For the next thirty-one days, you will be seeing a lot of me, whether you like it or not.*
However, because Blog Every Day in April proved to be more difficult than I'd originally anticipated (remember my uninspired crayon drawings?), I've decided to set a few more guidelines this month. Each day, I will present to you something noteworthy that I experienced with each of my senses. Cool? Cool.
Today, I saw: that I weigh less than what my driver's license thinks I do. Meaning I am thinner now than I was as a sixteen-year-old cross-country runner.
Today, I heard: this song for the first time in many years.
Today, I touched: the gooey elasticity of nasty dog saliva, because we were babysitting my brother's slobbery puppy, who, despite her adorableness, likes to lick the backs of my legs.
Today, I smelled: the ripening stench of fresh puppy vomit in my mom's car. Delightful!
Today, I tasted: a kebab with grilled tomatoes, onions, and bell peppers. Mmm!
Oh! I just had an idea. What if we make the senses thing a group activity? If you'd like, leave a comment with things you saw, heard, touched, smelled and tasted today. I don't know if this will actually be fun at all, but maybe we'll surprise ourselves.
On that note, I'm gonna go take a bath. I'll be back sometime tomorrow for more sensing, and (hopefully) less sucking. <3

*I realize that, should you not want to see me, it's pretty darn easy to unfollow a blog. I just wanted to sound like I had control over something.
