Smelling the Past

Recently I got to thinking about things that prompt a memory. A song, a movie or even a smell.

And sometimes, for that brief moment you can actually smell it.

I was reminded of how a certain pizza place used to smell. Walking into the building that housed the restaurant, the aroma of the pizza flooded the air and it was all you could smell walking through.

I think we can all relate to this

Another odd memory was the smell and taste of Crystal Pepsi. Although I wasn’t a big fan of it, it certainly took me back hearing that name. I only tried it a handful of times and to me it tasted like Pop Rocks Candy. 

Remembering these smells reminds me that we had a pretty awesome childhood, our parents did what it took to make us happy and showed us how to be good people.

Is there a specific scent that reminds you of someone? Or something? Or even a place? 

I miss you so much, Michael. We all do.
