RE:a sulphurous sort of smell,as though the seven-fold gates of hell had been unfolded

to those who know, this won't be a surprise, but i actually like the smell of sulfur..(well, mild sulfur odors..)

as a child, our family doctor was very careful with anti-biotics, and generally did not prescribe them, but prescribed sulfur based compounds... they were chalky and grey (later they added a chocolate flavor, but it didn't really cover the sulfur taste up)

my pavlovian response is to associate sulfur with good things (ie, the sore throat feeling better, the fever passing)

my other obsession
