Smelljà Vu

Filed under: Knee-Slappingly Funny — dangrdave @ 1:20 am

The other night, when some friends were over at the house, I was talking about déjà vu.  Now, déjà vu is the feeling of having been somewhere or seen something before.  Anyway, during the course of the conversation, I found myself at a loss when searching for a term to describe the feeling of past experiences that certain smells may evoke, such as smelling something that reminds you of the middle school cafeteria or the high school locker room.  I decided that the best word for describing this sensation is “smelljà vu,” but you probably already knew that.
