Thanks I think. If I could upload videos easily from my phone to here, I would post them. I'd happily text them to someone. My X-Men superpower was handling nasty tastes because I couldn't taste it.
The smell thing is really unfortunate actually. I can't smell hardly anything. I had to get really close to some elk stew for me to smell it. I'm really nervous for Thanksgiving because 1/4 of the fun is smelling it, and my mom's apple pie.
For those who poo-poo the Rona. It's worse than a bad cold. I don't think I realize how crappy I felt until I started to feel better. It didn't knock me flat like some, but it wasn't fun. I unknowingly exposed my 72 year old dad, his 72 year old buddy who came out with me, and my two nephews, who tested positive. They live with my brother who doesn't have good health, and I was really nervous.
I wasn't loosey goosey with protocol, but I wasn't super vigilant either. I was pretty scared there for a minute that I could have given it to my dad. It gave my poor wife and daughter the runs for 6 days. I went to church feeling fine and exposed people there (I wore a mask in all but one meeting, but we were pretty socially distanced in that meeting between 3 of us). I felt really bad.
Bottom line, take it pretty serious. You don't want someone to get it who goes south.
