Humans are “Sniffing” creatures. Dogs are sniffing creatures. The difference between Human sniffers and canine sniffers is that canine sniffers have many thousands of odor sensing nerves in their noses while Human beings have fewer — much fewer to be exact.
Another difference between canine sniffers and human sniffers is that the dogs are more likely to sniff other dogs in some fairly disgusting places and they do it in private or in public without any sense of shame at all. Dogs do sniff humans but I doubt there are many humans who actually sniff dogs.
That being said, I did know one rich young lady once who had a habit of French Kissing her two poodles. Ugh!
I remember once when I had a doberman pincer dog and the nextdoor lady (A really hefty creature) came over to my yard to bring me some home made cookies. While we were talking, my doberman (named “Nosey”) walked up behind the sturdily-built lady and rammed the full length of his nose up her behind, sniffing vigorously.
The fat lady let out a blood curdling scream and flew straight up into the air for about three or four feet … totally without the assistance of wings or rockets or anything else. She reminded me of a wild turkey flying straight up (Like a helicopter) into a tree.
But I digress. This article is supposed to be about sniffing cinnamon.
It is said in some places that sniffing a stick of cinnamon is especially helpful if you find yourself in the midst of a crowd of unwashed people … like in a city mission down in the slums …or somewhere where people are not particular about their own body odors.
If you are prone to letting farts in enclosed spaces, a good cinnamon stick is also useful in that circumstance.
But on a more sober note, it is said (I have heard it said) that sniffing cinnamon in any form is useful to people trying to learn things because it does something to the brain to help retain memory of what is being learned or studied.
You can follow that little tidbit up on the internet if you wish but maybe you will find the following interesting:Cinnamon may aid learning ability: Spice consumption made mice better learnersCinnamon is a delicious addition to toast, coffee and breakfast rolls.
