Smells hit me hard these days- I really don’t know why. I was at a open-air hawker center with my dad and some other relatives when a familiar scent wafted its way, uninvited, into my lungs- and it hurt. This has never happened to me before. Two smokers on my left, and yet another respiratory assassin behind me. Normally I just get disgusted with the smell and bear with it, but not this time- it got so bad that I got up and left the table.
Last time I checked, an increase in the effectiveness of one’s sensory functions is one of the side effects of pregnancy- correct me if I’m wrong- along with things like craving certain types of food, sudden breast growth (Doesn’t sound very scientific but it’s something like that. Clarification please, womankind?), and the like.
I do crave for food sometimes. Like sometime last year, I had the sudden need to have Pizza- walked halfway around Brickfields before giving up, whereby I then hopped on a train to KLCC. Then again, I don’t crave for strange things like rubber, frog hearts, paper, etc, so I guess I’m safe on that one. What about breast growth, then? I’m quite delighted to report that I’ve always been flat-chested, and hope to remain so perpetually.
And with such thoughts darting around in my mind, can anyone blame me for suddenly thinking that the acronym for Bandar, Bdr, stands for Breast Development Rate?
