Fenderson asked 12 years ago

I have this close friend that moved and I haven’t seen him for almost 6 weeks. I definitely really miss him, but I don’t even have to be thinking about him in that moment when sometimes randomly I just “smell him.” Why does this happen and HOW is it even poss. to imagine scents that aren’t there?
