Dearest Peeps who know stuff,

As a sheepy I just luff to taste and smell stuff. Tasting and smelling is my all time favourite way to see what something smells and tastes like !

Look, here are some lips that are inhaling a scent :

I think you are tasting also.. Permanent markers when inhaled through the lips or mouth taste like they smell. I can also taste them when inhaling through my nose.. I get the taste from the scent starting on the back of my tongue then moving up towards the middle of my tongue.. the taste is awful....
