TOUCH:

* It’s been in the 90’s everyday this week so it’s felt like a sauna outside (not that I’m complaining, I’d take a sauna over a walk- in- freezer any day!)

SMELL/TASTE:

*My allergies have been awful this week so it’s been hard to smell or taste anything. Although today, as some of my students were cleaning out their lockers, they were trading and sampling various Bath and Body Works lotions, sprays, and hand sanitizers. Afterwards the hallway smelled much better than it usually does which is a mixture of sweat, pencil shavings, and Axe body spray.
