Smells

This may be a weird topic, but I was thinking about this the other day. How interesting smells are.
Am I the only one who notices this? When you walk into someone’s house for the first time and you notice how it smells. As you visit them more often, that smell is always there. I call it a family smell. I know our house has it, my parent’s house, pretty much all houses I’ve been to have a distinct, specific smell. If I don’t notice a smell, it is probably because they smell similar to my family… or they are impeccably clean and don’t have a smell! Which is highly unlikely. This family smell is not a bad thing at all! It’s probably a combination of all the cleaners, detergents, and soaps you use, including the food you normally prepare. Even though I don’t notice my family smell… I think my brain does a little. It relaxes me. It’s only when I notice something that shouldn’t be there (a mess or stinky garbage) that it bothers me.
Well, that’s my two cents on a very random subject. I hope you all aren’t self conscious now about the way your house smells! It is just a part of your family!
