If you had to give up 1 of your 5 senses, which one would you give up and why?

Just wondering which of the 5 senses people would give up if they had to. My daughter asked me this question and I had a hard time answering it. In the end I chose to give up my sense of smell.

I would give up the sense of smell also. There wouldn't be very much that I would be missing anyway. Plus no one would ever know. It's not like being deaf or blind. As far as my taste buds are concerned, I really don't care. At my age I've tasted just about everything that I need to, it doesn't really matter.

I would give up my sense of smell because I need to hear to enjoy music, I need my vision so I can read and see where I am going, I need my sense of touch so I know if I am feeling anything -don't want to bump my head or cut my hand and not know how much damage has been done. I guess when you give up the sense of smell, you are also giving up the sense of taste.

I would say I'll give up my sense of smell. No gigantic loss there. Unless if you happened to be sleeping while theres a fire around you..

Hearing. Figure I could get along just fine, now that there's closed captioning on TV. Would HATE to become blind; I'm fighting like mad not to (had successful cataract surgery in both eyes followed by YAG laser "cloudy membrane" surgery in both eyes).

I think smell. I am so allergic to perfumes but I can't always smell them any more but I can tell if they are around. I begin to get all sinusy and my broncial tubes will start to inflame.

I have a decreased sense of smell so I can honestly say that I would have no qualms at all about giving it up entirely. Most of the time I can't smell anything other than the most overpowering scents. It does also affect my sense of taste a bit, making it so that things don't have as much flavor, but that's not too bad (especially when dining at my in-laws!). The only times in my life I could actually smell pretty well was when I was pregnant & that was an absolute nightmare. I had non-stop morning sickness & was constantly getting sick. The slightest whiff of a cologne or of food & I would be running for the restroom.
