Common sense. If it’s common, I guess there’s enough to go around. What’s a little extra?
That’s a really tough question. It’s like that Cinderella song, “Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone)”. If I were to lose a sense, I’d probably have to quit my job. Not that my job requires all of my senses but I would want to quit so I could evaluate what I would do for the rest of my life with my remaining 4 senses.
I would become a chef.
Now, what sense would I give up if I had to? I guess I’d have to give up hearing. It’s amazing what you hear while cooking if you really pay attention, but I think that’s the one to go.
- Sight: need to see what I’m doing
- Smell: need it to smell foods
- Taste: kind of essential
- Touch: (runner up) need it for cooking/plating – though it might be nice to not feel a finger getting sliced or hot oil splashing up on my arm.
