The 'Smell-o-Vision' Supermarket
Many supermarkets have an automatic water mister that keeps the produce fresh. Just before it turns on, you hear the sound of distant thunder, and the misters produce the smell of fresh rain.
Unfortunately, a new store near my house has taken the concept too far.
At this new place, when you pass the milk cases you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh hay.
In the meat department, there's a sizzling sound, and the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks with onions.
When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.
The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread and cookies.
Sounds great, right? But they've gone too far.
Let's just say I don't go down the toilet paper aisle anymore.
