I’m back! And I brought home a 100% genuine, souvenir Philadelphia sinus infection. I can now answer the last TITMT I posted before I left. First here are my favorite senses:
I’ve already wrote about my favorite foods. Also, one’s experience of food is multi-sensual. Taste, smell, and texture plays major roles and sight plays a minor one.

Here is an example of the sorts of images that appeal to me.
