Okay, this is so weird that I have decided that I must blog about it. It involves farts, so be forewarned. It may be more information than you wish to know.
I have heard many people discuss whether or not they dream in color. (I do.) I have never heard anyone discuss the senses in dreams. Now, of course we see in our dreams, and we hear and speak, too. At least, I'm assuming that most, if not all, of us do. Touch is most likely there, too, for most of us. I'm still not sure about taste. I've never tasted something in a dream, but maybe someone has.
Last night I had a dream that proved to me that I can smell in a dream. And that brings us to the subject of this post. Last night I dreamed that I farted but the only reason I knew that I farted was because I could smell it. At that point I was worried that other people near me would be able to smell it and know that I'd farted. (I don't know why I assumed it was my fart, since I didn't "feel" the fart. The mind is a mysterious thing.)
That's really all I have to say about this particular subject - just that I never knew, or even thought about, whether or not I could smell something in a dream. Now I know that I can.
