Stress Stinks

Prompt: Describe what you feel right now using your sense of smell. If you feel frustrated, write about what your frustration smells like. Use vivid words. Don't skimp on adjectives.


Response: The smooth earth-toned scent of graphite and eraser strings on inky pages. The rank tang of Ramen leftovers and the faint fizz of soda dregs' long lost carbonation hanging in the air. The invisible, almost imperceptible scent of human musk and missed sleep mixes with the growing odor of whizzing machinery within one computer keystroke - a hot plastic and metal smell.
