|Scratch and sniff....

So, I’m paying my Washington Gas Bill and there’s an insert inside with a little scratch and sniff dot. "Scratch this to smell what natural gas smells like." And before I knew it, I scratched it, shoved it right up against my nostrils and was assailed by the smell of natural gas.
Which I hate. And I know EXACTLY what it smells like. So why did I feel compelled to do it anyway? What is it about those scratch and sniff things? Is it just curiosity – will it REALLY smell like what it says it’s gonna? Or, are they tapping my inner monkey – who can’t resist to smell this, touch that, drink this...soul sister to Alice, I'd be stuck down that damn rabbit hole forever.
The sad thing is, if my poop bag supplier sent one of those little cards and it said “Scratch this to smell what dog poop smells like…I would probably scratch that, too. Knowing I didn't want to, but thinking, oh, surely they won't be able to get the smell....augh, ick, they DID!
