Don’t be a nosy Rosie. Keep your nose out other people’s business. Got your nose. Keep your nose to the grindstone.
These are just a couple of common sayings people have used that wordplay on our device of smell. Some interesting things about the grindstone saying: it apparently originated from millers putting their noses to a millstone or grindstone in order to check that the wheel used to grind cereal wasn’t overheating, but another origin theory is that putting your nose to a grindstone was a punishment of hard labor for workers, which is the general meaning for the saying today: keeping focused on your work.
The scents of things that worked my olfactory nerves today:
Glazed chicken in cranberry sauce
Peanut butter sandwich
Crunchy almond cereal and milk
New smells, mind excited
Olfactory itches, image brightens
Sweet scents of rose, foul odors of gas
Everything counts, keep it to the grindstone and stay in class!
Who nose what I’ll have next for the letter O?
