365 Writing Prompts: Super sensitive

If you were forced to give up one sense ,but gain super sensitivity in another, which sense would you choose.

The five senses are: Hear; See; Smell; Taste; Touch.

Let me analyze these senses and see which one can I sacrifice to gain super sensitivity in another.

I’ll start with “Hear”, this sense enlivens me, if I lose it I won’t enjoy all the amazing sounds that gives me joy and comfort, would I or can I forego this sense for some other super sense I’m afraid I cannot. It is too important.

Next is, “See” sense of sight,without it I’ll miss the color of the sky, an exquisite art work of famous artists; read my books piled up before me; watch the growth of my cute kittens; there are so many other things I’d miss, is it worth giving up this sense to gain super sensitivity in another, oh no never!

Smell is a necessity for me without it I won’t know if what I’m cooking is burning. I’d miss the fragrance of flowers; I won’t be able to get early warning if there is a fire in my house; the foul smell that the skunk gives off when threatened.

Taste is very important sense  to have, if we lose it we won’t be able to distinguish between good and bad taste, I cannot give this one either.

Touch is an important sense in our lives, it helps us  differentiate between soft and rough fabric; makes us aware of things that are too hot; show love and affection; how warm is our bath water to avoid burning our body.

These are the main reasons I am unable to decide which one of the senses I can give up,each one is different.
