Writing Prompt (14)

As I write this at my desk, I have my oil diffuser with my favorite scent (lavender and vanilla), my favorite hot drink (coffee), my favorite songs playing (currently 3 Libras by A Perfect Circle), and my favorite, fuzzy blanket draped across my lap. And this got me wondering…

If you had to lose one of your 5 senses (sight, smell, sound, touch, taste), which one would you choose to eliminate?

My answer will be in the comments below, where I would absolutely love to hear your’s! And as always, please follow me on here and my other social media to stay up to date 🙂

  1. I very much dislike silence, I’m always listening to music or the television (or a fan or heater at night- can’t sleep without it). Cooking is one of my biggest passions, and I need my sense of smell and taste for that. And I literally have to touch everything I come across in the store, especially if it looks soft, and then probably buy it, so I can nuzzle my face into it whenever I wanted. In conclusion, if I was able to choose— I would eliminate sight. I could live without seeing my sons, but it would be tragic if I couldn’t feel their hands in mine, smell the tops of their heads, or listen to their laughter and little voices.. however, I could do without the taste of some of the times they shove into my mouth…….


  2. Smell, I think. Even though I know smell enhances the taste of foods and evokes memories and such. You see, I’m a hopeless klutz even with good eyesight, so blind I wouldn’t last more than a couple of milliseconds. And I must be able to hear music and laughter and the sweet voices of my grandchildren. Taste, well, duh! Never to be able to appreciate a good wine or creme brûlée?! Inconceivable. And touch is critical–for safety purposes at any rate.


    1. Oh my gosh, your comment made me giggle… then get really hungry hahaha
      You do make such a good point though. I mean, I have a terrible habit of tripping over shadows. Hmm.. I may have to rethink my answer! 😀

  3. Boy, that’s a tough one to decide. Each have their own pluses and minuses, it’d be hard to pick. That said, I appreciate your swinging by the “Ranch” and thank you for the follow. We ❤︎ visitors especially those who present ‘think about it’ questions.


    1. You’re welcome! I have two dogs (mastiff and great dane) so anything about dogs I’m like “YES!”
      But if you like those kind of questions, please stick around! I’m doing 100 days of writing prompts to get people to think and write 🙂 and just take a minute or two out of their day for themselves. I love learning what other people come up with!
