On Getting COVID And Losing My Sense Of Taste And Smell

“After testing positive for COVID last week, I entirely lost my sense of smell and my sense of taste. The symptoms which prompted me to get tested were too mild to even mention, but when I tasted my coffee the following morning and found it as odorless and tasteless as tap water, my first thought was, ‘Please, God, not that,’ although I suspect my guardian angel’s first thought was, ‘Oh, he’s needed something like this for quite awhile.’ As usual, my guardian angel was right.”
